As one of the most investigated areas in biomedical research, the cancer field is rapidly advancing by translating biological insights towards better detection and therapeutics, including molecular classifications as well as immunotherapies. In the era of the genetically informed, emerging concepts in cancer biology and oncology research are colliding into precision medicine. In order to accelerate the development of personalized cancer therapies and further translate fundamental discoveries into the clinic, there must be open lines of communication at the interface between the lab and the clinic.

Our goal in organizing this Cell Symposium, Hallmarks of Cancer: Asia, is to convene global leaders in the cancer research arena to enhance our understanding of the key aspects of cancer and how to promote translation of this knowledge into the development of targeted therapeutics. We aim to provide a high-impact, high-profile forum for exchanging ideas and establishing a dialogue amongst clinicians, scientists and drug development companies.

As the inaugural Cell Symposium in Asia, we hope to stimulate new networks between scientists and clinicians within Asia and beyond to spark new and fruitful inter-continental collaborations. We look forward to seeing you in Beijing in November 2014!

Symposium themes:

  • Understanding cancer hallmarks - new frontiers
  • Cancer hallmarks as therapeutic targets
  • Tumor immunology and immunotherapy
  • Clinical progress and obstacles
  • Managing cancer in the “omics” era
