Event Overview
Welcome message:

The EACR-OECI Conference on Precision Medicine for Cancer will be held from 1 – 4 March 2015 at Neumünster Abbey, Luxembourg.

Recent advances in technology have provided an unprecedented opportunity to develop platforms for implementing precision/personalised medicine in cancer. This conference will discuss the challenges that face us in implementing these approaches.

Although our understanding of the pathogenesis of cancer has advanced enormously in recent years, we have only just begun to successfully translate this into improvements in the clinical management of patients. A significant opportunity is offered by the knowledge that cancer cells are ‘addicted’ to certain altered genes, a vulnerability that can be exploited therapeutically. A number of cancer-causing genes have been identified that are recurrently altered and stimulate tumour growth. These ‘driver genes’ correspond to oncogenes (or tumour suppressor genes) that are mutated or deregulated (e.g., amplified), causing the tumour to become dependent on the lesion(s) for survival and/or proliferation.

Topics to be covered include:
Who should attend?
This meeting is of interest to fundamental, translational and clinical cancer researchers alike, as it will cover several aspects of precision treatment of cancer, ranging from tumour heterogeneity and novel metabolic targets to circulating tumour cells and new drug target discovery strategies.

  • Precision medicines in today’s and tomorrow’s cancer treatment.
  • Tumour heterogeneity and drug response.
  • Drug resistance.
  • Novel strategies for drug target discovery.
  • Cancer immunotherapy
  • High throughput approaches to analysis of tumour samples
  • Next generation sequencing approaches
  • The implementation of personalised medicine

Background to the conference topic
Cancers are increasingly classified in terms of the ensemble of mutant genes they harbour, and targeting such genes with ‘precision’ inhibitors has resulted in profound clinical impact. The extent, duration and rate of responses can be unprecedented. Despite these advances, a large number of cancers treated with single agents become resistant soon after commencing treatment. This is caused by several mechanisms, including the pre-existence of genetic alterations in heterogeneous tumours. Thus, although significant progression has been made in identifying critical genetic factors serving as potential cancer liabilities, real benefits to patients have been modest.

We look forward to welcoming you to Luxembourg for this exciting conference.
