CHI’s Inaugural Targeted Cancer Therapies
Venue: University Park Hotel@MIT
|Event Date/Time: Sep 20, 2005||End Date/Time: Sep 21, 2005|
Different strategies are being pursued and some of the most promising, such as signal-transduction inhibitors, apoptosis-inducing substances, cell growth inhibitors, cancer vaccines and screening and profiling technologies will be discussed in this inaugural conference.
Important questions will be addressed such as: how to identify new targets, how to increase the effectiveness and specificity of new compounds, how to lower toxic side effects, how to validate specific assays, which targets are active in which group of patients and how to predict the responsiveness.
