4th edition Metabolism and cancer
Du 27 au 29 mai 2021
This 4th edition of Cancer and Metabolism symposium will be held in Bordeaux area, May 27-29th 2021 and will address key questions on human tumors nutrition, including redox and hypoxia states, metabolic control of epigenome, mitochondrial function and modulation, signaling & fueling of cancer with diagnostics and therapeutic implications. The success of the three past editions prompted us to elaborate an exciting scientific program that will address recent advances in the field of cancer energy metabolism and nutrition through communications of unpublished data and extended discussions.
Four main scientific sessions are proposed to highlight recent discoveries in the continuum of tumor energetics, ranging from patient’s diet optimization to tumor utilization of nutriments and oxygen for growth and survival. Influence of tumor fueling on the success of chemo- or immuno-therapies, tumor metabolic heterogeneity and communication with the adjacent non-cancer tissue will also be discussed.
This 4th edition is organized in collaboration with the SIRIC BRIO, Cancéropôle GSO & Club MétaboCancer, Réseau NACRe (National Alimentation Cancer Recherche), Bordeaux University Department of Life Sciences, Oncosphère, Région Nouvelle Aquitaine, INSERM and the « collectif Asperon ». Financial supports are also obtained from the private sector in the field of Life Sciences and Cancer.
