Extrinsic Control of Tumor Genesis and Progression
Organizer(s): Thea D. Tlsty and Mary J.C. Hendrix
Date: March 15 - 20, 2009
Location: Fairmont Waterfront, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
It has long been known that the interactions between cells and their respective microenvironments are instructive and necessary in proper development. Cell-environment interactions play complex roles in organ homeostasis and, when altered, disease. Increasing evidence now suggests that the microenvironment also modulates critical aspects of the genesis and progression of tumors. For example, initiation, progression and even control of metastasis and latency are governed by these interactions. This modulation is most likely brought about through both genetic and epigenetic mechanisms. Currently, the signaling pathways and mechanisms of regulation are mostly unknown. This conference will bring together leaders in this field to discuss current problems and strategize on the clinical application of new insights.
