HALLMARKS OF SKIN CANCER (HoSC) CONFERENCE

HALLMARKS OF SKIN CANCER (HoSC) CONFERENCE

November 6th-8th, 2017, HEIDELBERG

 

HoSC is organised by PhD and MD students of the Research Training Group (RTG) 2099 Hallmarks of Skin Cancer, headed by Prof.Sergij Goerdt. The RTG profits from a lively exchange between its research centres in London, Mannheim and Heidelberg combining basic science and clinical education with the emphasis on the hallmarks of skin cancer.

Our aim is to improve the understanding of skin cancer biology by addressing the key questions regarding tumour initiation, progression and metastasis. Additionally, we focus on the questions surrounding the contribution of angiogenesis, immune response and stroma in tumourigenesis.

This conference will offer a platform for young scientists and students where they can meet outstanding experts in the field and establish contacts with fellow researchers from all over the world.

 

The conference will take place from 6th-8th November 2017 at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg.

We are looking forward to lectures from the following confirmed distinguished speakers:

Boris C. Bastian, San Francisco

Corine Bertolotto, Nice

Cédric Blanpain, Bruxelles

Anja Katrin Bosserhoff, Erlangen

Meenhard Herlyn, Philadelphia

Catherin Niemann, Cologne

Carien Niessen, Cologne

Sergio Quezada, London

Dennis Roop, Aurora

Dirk Schadendorf, Essen

Maria Sibilia, Vienna

Patrizia Stoitzner, Innsbruck

Thomas Tüting, Magdeburg

Erwin Wagner, Madrid

Fiona M. Watt, London

Ashani Weeraratna, Philadelphia
