Tumor Heterogeneity, Plasticity and Therapy

During this 2-day conference the following topics will be covered:

  • Plasticity & initiation/progression and metastasis (including CTCs)
  • Heterogeneity and reprogramming of the Tumor (immune) microenvironment
  • Adaptation and Resistance to targeted therapies
  • Adaptation and Resistance to immuno-therapies (including influence of microbiome)


More info will follow soon.
