Stem Cells and Cancer

Conferències IRB Barcelona BioMed
4 oct. 21
- 6 oct. 21

The cancer stem cell (CSC) concept was proposed four decades ago, and states that tumor growth, analogous to the renewal of healthy tissues, is fueled by small numbers of dedicated stem cells. It has gradually become clear that many tumors harbor CSCs in dedicated niches, and yet their identification and eradication has not been as obvious as was initially hoped. Recent studies have provided unprecedented insights into CSC plasticity, quiescence, renewal, and therapeutic response.

Presentation


Conference description

This conference will provide an interdisciplinary forum for researchers interested in the connections between stem cell biology and cancer to meet and discuss the latest advances in this field. Specific topics to be discussed include stem cell metabolism, the interaction of healthy and tumor stem cells with the immune environment and the roles of CSCs during metastasis and therapy resistance.

VERY IMPORTANT:

The vaccination certificate must be provided on the first day of the conference.

All anti-Covid measures will be strictly adhered to. We are unable to foresee whether, in October, it will be necessary to do a rapid daily antigen test before starting the sessions. We will be informed at all times about health measures, and if the health authorities recommend the test in October, we will make the appropriate arrangements.
