International cancer research symposia

Monash University's Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will be hosting an international cancer research symposia held in memory of the late Professor Martin Lackmann, entitled ‘Cell Signalling and its Therapeutic Implications’ at Peppers Moonah Links Resort in the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia between Wednesday 20th and Friday 22nd May 2015. Registration closes 1 May.

The program features top international and national scientists including Professors Ben Neel (New York), Philippe Bastiaens (Dortmund) and Nick Tonks (Cold Spring Harbor), and includes sessions on receptor signalling, imaging, the tumour microenvironment, oncogenes, tumour suppressors and research translation. The meeting will bring together researchers, students and clinicians with an interest in cancer cell signaling and how discoveries in this area can lead to the identification of therapeutic targets and biomarkers.

Closing date for abstracts is Friday 24th April (for details visit www.csti.com.au). Several slots on the program will be allocated for short talks selected from the selected abstracts, and there will be poster prizes sponsored by the Monash Comprehensive Cancer Consortium and FEBS J. The inaugural Lackmann Medal for Translational Research will also be awarded at this symposium.
