EACR Conference on Radiation Biology and Cancer

The EACR Conference on Radiation Biology and Cancer: From Molecular Responses to the Clinic will be held on 5 – 7 February 2015 at the Philharmonie, Essen, Germany.

Who should attend?
The EACR Conference on “Radiation Biology and Cancer” brings together researchers from different disciplines with interest in DNA Damage Signalling and Repair, the Response of Cells and Tissues to Photon and Proton Radiation and their application in Basic and Translational Cancer Research. The translational character of the conference makes it interesting to basic researchers, medical oncologists and Industry.

The conference generates a unique international forum for early-stage basic cancer researchers and medical oncologists to present their work and meet experts in their fields of interest. It offers great opportunities not only to share research findings, but also to establish new and strengthen old collaborations in an informal but inspiring setting.

Topics to be covered
The conference will cover recent developments in Radiation Biology and Molecular Radiation Oncology, as well as in Cancer Biology & Treatment; sessions are planned covering the following topics:

  • Mechanisms of DNA damage signaling and DNA repair
  • Ubiquitination in DNA damage response
  • miRNAs in cancer development and radiation response
  • Impact of tumour hypoxia on genomic stability
  • Tumour metabolism and treatment response
  • Role of the tumour microenvironment in tumour development and response to radiation
  • Tumour heterogeneity and clonal evolution during therapy
  • Mechanisms of targeted and non-targeted effects of photon and particle radiation
  • Interaction of ionizing radiation and the immune system
  • Potential of DNA damage signaling for anticancer drug development
  • Utility of circulating biomarkers for treatment stratification and patient monitoring
  • Cancer development, DNA-damage response and DNA repair
  • Tumour biology and treatment
  • Tumor hypoxia and genomic instability
  • Translational approaches
  • Biology approaches to particle therapy
  • Radiation response and tumour microenvironment
