CSH Asia / ICMS (The International Cancer Microenvironment Society) Joint Conference on Tumor Microenvironment

We are pleased to announce CSH Asia / ICMS (The International Cancer Microenvironment Society) Joint Conference on Tumor Microenvironment which will be held at the Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center in Suzhou, China, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai. The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Tuesday November 13, and will conclude after lunch on Saturday November 17, 2012.

This conference is similar in design to the famous Cold Spring Harbor meetings series, a program now in its 76th year. The conference will include a combination of oral sessions and poster sessions. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.

Major Topics:
• Regulatory pathways (metabolic pathways, microRNAs, etc.) in the tumor microenvironment
• Metastasis & the metastatic microenvironment
• Protective immunity & inflammation in the tumor microenvironment
• Imaging of the tumor microenvironment
• Pre-metastatic niches and stem cells
• Interactions of tumor cells with cells (endothelial cells, immunocytes, fibroblasts, etc.) & molecules (antibodies, cytokines, chemokines, enzymes, etc.), in the tumor microenvironment
• Translational cancer research – clinical & preclinical studies:
- Targeting of tumor microenvironment interactions
- Biomarkers & molecular signatures
- Modifying the tumor microenvironment
+ show speakers and program
