The « Tumour targeting & radiotherapies network » of the Cancéropôle Grand-Ouest is pleased to announce its twelfth international workshop dedicated to young researchers (PhD Students and Post-Docs) even so experienced researchers are invited to participate, which will take place september 26-29, 2018 in Le Bono, West of France.
The twelfth international workshop edition entitled “Imaging and therapeutic targeting in cancerology: New advances and trends in preclinical and clinical studies” will focus on state of the art and perspectives in this field,as seen by a multidisciplinary research community composed of biologists, chemists, pharmacists and physicians.
Since several years, many different targeted therapies have been approved for use in cancer treatment like hormone therapies, signal transduction inhibitors, gene expression modulators, apoptosis inducers, angiogenesis inhibitors, immunotherapies. This workshop will focus on delivery molecules as radiolabelled compounds, nanodrugs and antibody drug conjugates. It will explore how to identify the adequate tumour targets in the cell or in the tumour microenvironment, and the potential strategies to reach them. Moreover, we will be interested in follow-up of the targeting by imaging with a special attention to multimodality for imaging and therapy.
Overview lectures will be given by experts in the different scientific fields addressed by the workshop. A number of selected oral presentations given by young researchers will complete the different scientific sessions. This workshop aims at sharing scientific results and at facilitating exchanges between experienced and young researchers in a fast advancing field.
To stimulate intense discussions between young and senior scientists, the total attendance is limited to a maximum of 65 persons.
30 travel grant awards are available for the young selected researchers (PhD students and Post-Doctoral scientists). Each award consists of complimentary registration to the workshop, accommodation expenses, and up to 250€ contribution to travel expenses. Candidates must submit an abstract and must be selected as speaker in one of the scientific sessions to benefit from these awards. Selected candidates will be notified by June 25, 2018.
This event will take place in the “Manoir de Kerdréan” in Le Bono, in the Gulf of Morbihan, at about two hours from Nantes in West of France.
Young researchers are asked to submit an abstract presenting their current research projects and results for one of the three scientific sessions of the workshop. Abstract must be in English and contain a maximum of 300 words. A model is available on the website at http://www.cgo-workshop-vecto.fr/. Abstracts will be selected on scientific quality and pertinence. Abstracts not relevant to this workshop will be rejected. The organizing committee will review all submitted abstracts and will determine which abstracts will be presented orally. Due to the limitation of the number of attendees, early registration and abstract submission are strongly advised.
Please, submit your abstract before June 15, 2018.
