International Conference "Overcoming treatment barriers in Cancer" and the Young Scientist Symposium - June 05/06 & June 07, 2015, Berlin - Register now!

The Molecular Cancer Research Center (MKFZ) and the Medical Department, Division of Hematology, Oncology and Tumor Immunology of the Charité organize an international conference on “Making walls history: Overcoming treatment barriers in Cancer“ on June 05/06, 2015 at the Harnack-Haus, Ihnestrasse 16-20, 14129 Berlin; we would like to cordially invite you to the conference.

The topic of the conference reflects one of the most demanding problems in cancer research: it becomes increasingly clear that simple mutation/ inhibitor strategies following the classic idea of “targeted therapies” often do not work as well as expected. Thus, novel strategies taking into account the complexity of cancer are urgently needed - strategies having the potential to “Overcome treatment barriers in Cancer”.

For the first time the "in Cancer" conference is accompanied by a satellite symposium for young scientists in cancer research on June 07 which aims to bring aspiring PhD students from the broad cancer research field together. We seek to create an inspiring meeting to enable an exchange of ideas and provide a platform for project discussions for those who are in an early step in their research career. The satellite symposium is organized by the BSIO; participation is free for registered participants of the  Overcoming treatment barriers in Cancer meeting.

“Early Bird” registration featuring a reduced conference fee (170 € for academics, 85 € for students) and abstract submission (selected abstracts will be presented in short talks) end on April 24, 2015.

International conference on "From Omics to Novel Therapies in Cancer"

The BSIO would like to draw your attention to the International Conference on "From Omics to Novel Therapies in Cancer" held on May 23/24 in Berlin.

Where: Berlinische Galerie, Alte Jakobstraße 124, 10969 Berlin

When:  May 23/24, 2014

Homepage: From Omics to Novel Therapies in Cancer

Scientific overview

The Molecular Cancer Research Center (MKFZ) and the Medical Department, Division of Hematology, Oncology and Tumor Immunology of the Charité organize the international conference “From Omics to Novel Therapies in Cancer” on May 23-24, 2014 in cooperation with the Max Delbrueck Center for Molecular Medicine Berlin (MDC) at the Berlinische Galerie. The meeting is chaired by Prof. Dr. Clemens A. Schmitt and Prof. Dr. Claus Scheidereit.

The topic of this conference represents one of the most urgent ones in cancer research: using omics-based analyses with regard to tumor heterogeneity to gain new and effective therapy concepts, as the majority of targeted therapy approaches still do not work in the clinic, even though the results gained in the lab are very promising. Thus, addressing this missing link between multiple omics-based analyses of the tumor’s “fingerprint” and effective therapy development represents the main goal of the conference.

International conference on "Systems Medicine in Cancer"

The BSIO would like to draw your attention to the International Conference on "Systems Medicine in Cancer" held on June 14/15 in Berlin.

Where: Langenbeck Virchow House, Luisenstrasse 59 (Berlin-Mitte)

When:  June 14/15 2013

Homepage: Systems Medicine in Cancer

Scientific overview

The Molekulares Krebsforschungszentrum (MKFZ) and the Medical Department, Division of Hematology, Oncology and Tumorimmunology of the Charité Berlin are organizing an international conference on “Systems Medicine in Cancer”. The conference aims at contributing to overcoming one of the most crucial obstacles in the clinic by making recent research findings in the area of Systems Medicine more rapidly available for clinical use.

The conference combines the fields “Fundamental Mechanisms of Disease”, “Oncogenic Signaling Networks”, “Mechanisms of Dissemination and Metastasis”, “Immunosurveillance, Tolerance, and Autoimmunity”, “Condition- vs. Target-based Interventions” as well as “Exploiting Systems-wide Non-Cancer Pharmacogenomics for novel Cancer Therapies” and “Omics-connecting Bioinformatics, Computational Medicine, Modeling and Simulation”. Internationally renowned experts in the fields have already confirmed their participation.
