Cancer is a complex group of diseases challenging science and medicine. Over the years, it has become evident that an integrated approach encompassing traditional disciplines such as biology, data science and statistics, computer science, applied mathematics, physics, chemistry, physio-pathology and medicine was mandatory to understand and classify cancers, and envision effective treatments.
The Symposium “Multidisciplinary Approaches in Cancer Research” perfectly illustrates this perspective, as the two day program features leading experts from the aforementioned disciplines, whose keynote lectures will cover the following themes:
Session 1: Chemical biology for cancer therapy
Session 2: Personalized and translational medicine
Session 3: Mathematical models of tumor growth
Session 4: Network and systems biology of cancer
Session 5: Response to cancer treatment
Session 6: Industrial transfer: local success stories
