Targeting VEGF-Mediated Tumor Angiogenesis in Cancer Therapy

June 19 - 20, 2014 The New York Academy of Sciences

A decade after the first cancer drug targeting VEGF signaling in tumor blood vessel formation received approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), significant effort has been dedicated toward progressing the research, development, and clinical application of anti-angiogenic cancer therapies.  Drawing on lessons learned from successes and failures, this conference will examine ways to improve cancer therapy by addressing urgent issues such as:

i. inherent /acquired resistance,

ii. immunomodulation,

iii. enhanced invasiveness / metastasis, and

iv. lack of validated predictive and prognostic biomarkers.

Presentations, including a keynote lecture by Harold F. Dvorak, MD, will explore VEGF-dependent and alternative mechanisms of angiogenesis. “Point–Counterpoint” debates between leading experts will aim to resolve controversies regarding the function of vascular normalization, treatment-induced metastasis, and the validity of hypertension as a physiological biomarker.

Cancer Biomarker Discovery and Assay Development

Tuesday, 13 May 2014 09:00 - 17:00 London, United Kingdom

Whilst numerous challenges exist in translating biomarker research into the clinical space; a number of gene and protein based biomarkers are already being used at some point in patient care. This event will discuss the further discovery and assay development of genetic, epigenetic, proteomic, glycomic, and imaging biomarkers which can be used for cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and epidemiology.  We provide an informal atmosphere for discussion and debate.  This is an ideal setting for experts to present their work and discuss their findings. This event is part of the Controlling Cancer Summit 2014 -www.controllingcancersummit2014.com

International Symposium on Supportive Care in Cancer

June 26-28 2014 Miami, Florida

Being held in Miami, Florida, USA, the MASCC/ISOO 2014 International Symposium will spotlight excellent science and cutting edge research aimed at enhancing the lives of people coping with cancer.

In a few short years, MASCC-ISOO annual meetings have developed a reputation for providing the most current data and innovative techniques with regards to how best minimize therapy-induced side effects and complications associated with cancer.

This year’s scientific program is our most ambitious one yet. The combined expertise of the world’s premier oncology medical, surgical, and radiology physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, dieticians, outcomes specialists, psychologists, statisticians, infectious disease specialists and other allied health professionals will be harnessed in order to facilitate a robust exchange of ideas and information on the clinical management and basic science aspects of supportive care in cancer.

Significant advances in cancer treatment in the last two decades have been made possible by the strides in supportive care. By joining colleagues from around the world, June 26-28 2014, you will both gain access to the latest knowledge and have the opportunity to contribute your own insights to this important discussion on all aspects of cancer care.
