Réunions, Congrès, Colloques : Réunion Targeting and Imaging of Tumor Microenvironment


The symposium is organized into 5 sessions that would be held on 2.5 days. Each session will start with an invited expert summarizing the essence of a selected aspect of the tumor microenvironment.
Then, it will be followed by 6 oral presentations from young researchers, based on original data, and selected from proffered abstracts.

Programme topics include

  • Photon imaging to explore the tumor microenvironment,
  • Multimodal imaging and targeting of the tumor microenvironment,
  • ECM components and remodeling as source of tumor microenvironment targets,
  • Targeting tumor and non-neoplastic cells  within the tumor microenvironment,
  • Targeting secreted soluble factors in the tumor microenvironment.

Abstract will be selected according to their scientific quality while trying to insure a broad representation of students throughout Europe. Abstracts not relevant to this workshop will be rejected. The organizing committee will review all submitted abstracts and will determine which abstract will be presented orally.
