International Symposium of Advances in Cancer Stem Cell Therapeutics

Author:   Time:July 5, 2019   Clicks:

 

Organized by the Academy of Medical Sciences, Zhengzhou University, China

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are cancer cells that possess characteristics associated with normal stem cells. CSCs are therefore tumorigenic and may generate tumors through the stem cell processes of self-renewal and differentiation into multiple cell types. Such cells are hypothesized to persist in tumors as a distinct population and cause relapse and metastasis by giving rise to new tumors. Therefore, development of specific therapies targeted at CSCs holds great promise for improvement of survival and quality of life for cancer patients, especially for patients with metastatic disease.

The International Symposium of Advances in Cancer Stem Cell Therapeutics will encompass cutting-edge research and findings in CSC technologies, development of CSC-targeted therapies, current understanding of cancer cell plasticity and tumor microenvironment, and other advancements in CSC research and clinical translation.

The International Symposium of Advances in Cancer Stem Cell Therapeutics will feature world-renowned keynote speakers in the field and will be a great platform for academicians, scientists, clinicians, business associates and graduate students to share their current findings in CSC research and clinical application.
