5th Lecture Series in Cancer Research

Project Details


Cancer represents a societal burden that is projected to increase over the next decades as the population ages. Therefore, to control cancer represents a challenge for national health care services and for research investment. Research on cancer is the mission of LIH’s DONC. High quality training of scientists and medical staff in cancer research is a prerequisite if we want to inspire new strategies to fight cancer, including better diagnosis, prognosis or treatment. This project aims to continue our Lecture Series in CANCER RESEARCH, established for the first time in 2013. It is organised in cooperation with the Department of Life Sciences and Medicine (DLSM) of the University of Luxembourg and will ideally complement the CANBIO DTU and its planned sequel CANBIO2 by providing state-of-the-art lectures in cancer biology covering the multiple distinct facets of the tumor ecosystem and the molecular mechanisms of tumour host interactions. A special focus will be on novel cancer models, cancer metabolism and novel treatment strategies. This will include subjects in immuno-oncology, biomarker discovery, therapeutic application, as well as building computational disease models to facilitate innovative translational research.
