Event Overview
Welcome message:

Evading cell death is a hallmark of cancer cells, which contributes to tumour growth and therapeutic resistance. But cancer cells also highjack mechanisms like protective autophagy or senescence to promote tumour growth. Cell death is an important determinant of the immune response to cancer, which may either increase the antitumour effect or promote tumour growth.

The conference will cover exciting new insights into this highly-relevant field, so please join us in Amsterdam to be stimulated by the latest research updates!

Target Audience

With its translational character, the conference has been designed for basic and translational cancer scientists, as well as oncologists who are interested in the multifaceted role of cell death in cancer.

We strongly encourage early-stage basic cancer researchers and medical oncologists to present their work to the international community. There will be plenty of opportunities for interaction with some of the top experts in the field, including Round Table Discussions. We anticipate an inspiring informal atmosphere to share research findings, and to establish or strengthen collaborations.

Topics to be covered

Mechanisms and regulation of classical apoptotic and non-classical modes of cell death

Mechanistic insight into autophagy and senescence

Therapeutic strategies modulating cell death in cancer cells

Impact of cell death on immune responses to cancer and cancer therapies

How to get there

Travelling to and from the Airport

The train station at Schipol Airport is easily accessed by lifts or escalators in the terminal building. There are very regular trains to the Amsterdam Central Station. Tickets can be purchased from ticket machines using a credit card and we recommend spending a little extra to take the fast route with no stops between the airport and the station. The journey takes less than 15 minutes.

Directions from the train station

De Rode Hoed is located in the centre of Amsterdam, about a 15 minute walk from Amsterdam Central Train Station. Please note that getting to your destination in this area with many canals and small bridges may require some extra time.

Upon leaving Amsterdam Central Station,cross the tram rails and stay right. Walk across the bridge on your right. At the traffic lights, cross both streets towards Cafe Karpershoek / Play-Inn casino in front of you. Continue to the right, this is the Prins Hendrikkade. After approximately 100 m, follow the left turn, and immediately go right again across the bridge with the fish-shop. Turn left, then right again, at the corner with the coffee-shops (The Doors/The Bulldog).

This is the Brouwersgracht. Continue on the Brouwersgracht for approx. 200 m, past the playground, cross the bridge on the left, and continue on the bridge to the right. Turn left at the Keizersgracht (Emperor's Canal). You will find De Rode Hoed after approx. 200 m, at number 102.
