About the Workshop
This workshop is the third in a series of EMBO meetings and represents the continuation of the signal transduction Dubrovnik meetings which started in 1998 and held every two years in the same venue, the beautiful Hotel Croatia in Cavtat, close to the town of Dubrovnik. In 2018 we will celebrate the 20th anniversary of this meeting, which has meanwhile grown into one of the most prestigious conferences on signal transduction with up to 300 participants from all over the world.
The focus of this EMBO Workshop will be on the challenges that cancer evolution and the complex tumor-stroma interactions pose to modern cancer treatments.
The program contains the following main subjects:
- Signaling mechanisms in cancer
- Genomic integrity and cancer
- Cancer stem cells
- Tumor-stroma interactions
- Cancer evolution and tumor heterogeneity
- Cancer therapy
About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
