The tumor microenvironment forms a complex, privileged zone where conditions are permissive for unchecked tumor progression. Therein, both cancer and stromal cells exhibit aberrant growth and survival signaling, making pathway analyses ever-more difficult. Advanced tools have enabled deeper, more thorough investigation into how the tumor microenvironment has adapted to evade the immune system, and how we might counteract those adaptations. The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to discuss the interplay of cells within the tumor microenvironment and to share their latest methods and findings. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics that are related to their research.

Topics to be covered:

  • Studying pro-cancer signaling within the tumor niche
  • New assays for analyzing cell behavior and signaling within the tumor microenvironment
