Cancer Biology: Joint Symposium with IFOM (Italy) in Oct at Shiran-Kaikan

This symposium is closed.
Thank you for your support and contribution to the symposium.

The 2nd IFOM – Kyoto University Joint Symposium
“Perspective in Cancer Biology: Genetic Variations and Host-tumor Interactions”

We cordially invite you to attend a two-day symposium, organized by Kyoto University and IFOM (Milan, Italy), a leading European research institute, in the field of molecular oncology.
Accumulating evidence in this field is now shedding new light on several important issues in cancer research, such as how cellular heterogeneity arises in tumor tissues, which host factors promote or suppress the malignant behavior of cancer cells, and how the immune system interacts with cancer cells. This symposium will provide a unique opportunity to learn about and discuss these and other hot topics in cancer research through lectures by experts and poster presentations by young researchers. Take part, and enjoy the exciting and novel discoveries.

October 6th, 9:30 – 18:05 (Reception opens at 8:30 a.m.)
October 7th, 9:20 – 17:05 (Reception opens at 9:00 a.m.)国際掛 画像2
