Synopsis

Metastatic disease, the lethal component of cancer, remains largely intractable to modern medicine. New insights into the biology of metastasis promise fresh insights into how to design therapies that effectively tackle this life-threatening disease process. Recent years have seen the development of novel tools for studying metastasis that continue to provide dramatic advances in our understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms that drive metastasis formation. Metastasis is regulated by both tumor cell-intrinisic factors such as genetic defects, epigenetic perturbation and metabolic changes, as well as by a variety of factors in the microenvironment, including cells of the immune system. These tumor cell-intrinsic factors combine with the external microenvironment to regulate tumor dormancy and the development of therapy resistance. This knowledge is starting to be translated into therapies that target not only the metastatic seed but also the microenvironmental soil.

Key Sessions

  1. Therapy-induced metastasis and the patient with metastatic disease
  2. Metabolic changes that drive metastasis
  3. Metastatic dormancy - maintenance and escape
  4. Novel approaches to pharmacology and drug delivery for the  treatment of metastases
  5. Control of metastasis by inflammation and the innate immune system
  6. Targeting the metastatic microenvironment
  7. Novel tools for studying metastasis
  8. Cancer Stem Cells - Do we all mean the same? A controversy session.

Target Audience

Research scientists from both academia and the pharmaceutical industry will benefit from this Novel Concepts in the Biology and Treatment of Metastatic Cancer meeting by updating their knowledge in key areas of this rapidly moving field. Clinicians involved in the treatment and management of cancer patients will obtain new insights into how the modern understanding of metastasis has the potential to translate into the clinic. Graduate students and postdocs in metastatic cancer treatment will gain a cutting-edge overview of the field and will have the unique opportunity to interact with and network intensively with leaders in the field due to the strictly limited number of conference participants.

Location

Paphos is a coastal city in the southwest of Cyprus and the capital of Paphos District. In antiquity, two locations were called Paphos: Old Paphos and New Paphos. The currently inhabited city, New Paphos, lies on the Mediterranean coast, about 50 km (31.07 mi) west of Limassol (the biggest port on the island). 

Paphos is also the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite and is an open air museum of Byzantine churches and Roman ruins interspersed with al fresco restaurants and café bars.

The Annabelle is the closest hotel to Paphos’s picturesque fishing harbour, ancient port and the UNESCO-listed House of Dionysos, containing Cyprus’s world-renowned Roman mosaics.

Paphos International Airport is the country's second-largest airport and is 16 km away from The Annabelle. The drive time is approximately 20 minutes.

Group Activity 1: Paphos Tombs of the Kings – Mosaics – Aphrodite’s Rock

We have arranged an exciting group activity for the 2016 Novel Concepts in the Biology and Treatment of Metastatic Cancer Conference participants. The tour will take place during free time on Sunday 06th November 2016.

Paphos is one of the cities in Cyprus where you can best understand the culture civilizing influence the Roman occupiers made. Here, Greek history and mythology is combined with Roman life art at the time of the emerging Christianity on the island. More than in any other city, the visitor is experiencing cultural history at every turn. One example and an unforgettable experience is one of the most remarkable testimonies of Roman art on the island, the Roman villas with their unique floor mosaics, which will be our first stop. Another interesting site to visit is the Tombs of the Kings. The last stop takes us out of Paphos to the birthplace of Aphrodite – Petra tou Romiouor known also as Aphrodite Rock.

The tour is optional and should you wish to participate we would ask that you email laura@fusion-conferences.com to confirm your participation no later than Sunday 30th October 2016 as we are required to confirm numbers in advance in order to arrange appropriate transportation.

Oral Presenters

We have a number of oral opportunities available at this Novel Concepts in the Biology and Treatment of Metastatic Cancer conference. To be considered for a talk, please register for the conference and you will be able to submit your abstract online and monitor the status of your abstract through your Fusion account. Please use the abstract template provided and ensure your abstract is no longer than one page in length. Any abstracts exceeding this size may be cut short during print.

Please check the conference programme carefully to note your presentation time (inclusive of Q&A) should you be accepted for an oral presentation.

Your Presentation on the Day

If you have prepared some slides to accompanying your talk please ensure you bring these with you on a USB or portable file saving device.

For those presenting on the first day, please email your slides to us so we can have everything prepared and ready for the first session. Please email your slides to: admin@fusion-conferences.com

On the day of your presentation please make yourself known to the AV team who will be available in the conference room. If you have any animations or videos we do advise to run through the presentation with the AV tech to make sure everything is compatible. We also advise that all speakers make themselves known to the AV tech in the conference room immediately before your session beings. The AV tech will apply your microphone and provide a laser pointer should you have an accompanying presentation. We prefer speakers to use our master laptop to run presentations from, however, if you prefer to use your own laptop, please notify us in advance.

It is important that all speakers adhere to their presentation time and respect their fellow presenters. A visual traffic light aide will be available to warn presenters and the audience as your time decreases.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to approach our AV tech or a member of the Fusion team.
