Cancer metabolism has been hailed the potential “Achilles’s heel” of cancer. Therefore it is no wonder that drugs targeting metabolic pathways are an exciting prospect in oncology. Given the pharmaceutical industry’s heavy investment into the research of cancer metabolism, there has never been such a need for companies to come together to improve the future of cancer treatments with broad acting, potent drugs.
The World Cancer Metabolism Summit will cover topics highlighted by industry leaders in the commercial drug development process; specific and relevant to cancer metabolism. With the agenda designed by recent research with experts at GSK, AstraZeneca, Genentech, Myrexis, Cornerstone Pharmaceuticals and Warburg Glycomed, it is built to reflect the current challenges the industry is facing, and drive businesses and drugs through the clinic and into the market. This meeting will directly help you to accelerate progress and overcome the many hurdles in pre-clinical and early clinical stages.
This meeting will be your only to chance to hear from the industry leaders such as AstraZeneca, Warburg Glycomed and Myrexis about the approaches and strategies that they use when developing these drugs.
