Mouse Models at the Frontiers of Cancer Discovery
joint with Molecular Targets for Cancer
Organizer(s): Terry A. Van Dyke, Guillermina Lozano and Scott W. Lowe
Date: March 18 - 23, 2007
Location: Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, BC, Canada
Supported by the Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Manipulation of the mouse provides an avenue for dissecting the complexities of cancer development. Ongoing research explores causal pathways and mechanisms, including their cell specificity. Significant advances are emerging in the study of microenvironment interactions among tumor cells, the immune system, vasculature, mesenchyme and circulating factors. Models that recapitulate properties of the human diseases are being established, providing the potential for discovery and preclinical testing. The application of genomics technologies has begun to show promise in informing the human disease. Nevertheless, the use of such models in translational research is in its infancy. This meeting will highlight advances in the understanding of complex cancer mechanisms and will address the successes, challenges, and needs in translating this research to the clinic. The meeting agenda includes world-class investigators presenting cutting edge science, but also addressing issues relevant to advancing the appropriate use of spontaneous cancer models in translational endeavors.
