3. pRED Oncology Award - Call for Abstracts
The Roche Discovery Oncology unit at the pRED Innovation Center in Penzberg invites authors to submit abstracts which describe their scientific work in the field of „Pathophysiology of the extracellular matrix - basic concepts and therapeutic approaches for cancer therapy“.
Extracellular matrix (ECM) plays a pivotal role in many processes during development, tissue homeostasis and remodeling. The pathophysiology of the ECM is considered a promising area with anticipated impact on targeted cancer drug delivery and cancer immuno-therapy. For the 3rd pRED Oncology Award the Roche pRED Discovery Oncology unit in Penzberg invites authors to submit abstracts which describe their scientific work in the fields of basic mechanisms and the pathophysiology of the extracellular matrix.
Topics include but are not restricted to the impact of ECM on:
Immune cell function, migration of immune effector cells, interstitial pressure within the tumor mass, accessibility and penetration of solid tumors by therapeutic antibodies and small molecules, metastasis formation, angiogenesis, adhesion and anoikis, tumor-specific targeting.
Qualified applicants include graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in Europe.
Abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of experts and selected for presentation and awards on the basis of scientific merit. The ten best contributions will be elected and the authors will be invited to the Roche Penzberg campus for presentations and poster discussions on October 29 and 30, 2015.
