Description

The Ninth International Congress on Targeted Therapies in Cancer is designed to provide participants with cutting-edge information on novel targeted anticancer therapies now in development, including the most current clinical data on those agents as well as information on their mechanisms of action. The congress will provide a unique opportunity for medical oncologists, translational researchers, and drug developers from academia and industry to learn from and interact with international leaders in novel therapeutic and drug discovery platforms and to obtain a preview of agents in development for the next generation of cancer therapy. Topics to be discussed include DNA repair and PARP inhibition, the tumor microenvironment, cell surface receptors, mediators of intracellular signaling, regulators of cellular processes such as protein homeostasis and apoptosis, and novel immunotherapeutic agents being developed in multiple tumor types.

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward medical oncologists, translational researchers (MDs and PhDs), and drug developers from academia and industry interested in cancer drug development. Other health care professionals interested in the treatment of cancer are also invited to attend.
