Communication between cancer cells has long been a target of drug-discovery efforts, but the conversations between cells can be convoluted and confused by signaling-pathway crosstalk, feedback loops, and other complex interactions. Recent advances have led to the elucidation of unexpected interactions between cells during the oncogenic transition, and these interactions are specific to the tumor microenvironment. To explore the advances in understanding cancer signaling, The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to discuss their research and share insights into targeting these pathways with anti-cancer therapeutics. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics related to their research.
Topics to be covered:
- How the tumor microenvironment shapes tumor behavior and therapeutic efficacy
- Signaling-pathway manipulation as a key strategy for anticancer therapies
