The image depicts validation of complementary spatial distributions between hypoxia-induced GFP expression (green) and Hoechst 33342 labeling (blue) in reporter-transduced mouse mammary 4T1 carcinoma tumor cells.  This complementary distribution between GFP fluorescence and Hoechst 33342 labeling in 4T1 tumors indicates that the GFP reporter gene is specifically expressed in insufficiently perfused tumor tissues, where hypoxia commonly occurs.

Over 400 researchers and scientists attended the 2011 Metabolism and Cancer conference - reinforcing the fact that metabolism in cancer growth and survival is a greatly expanding field. This second AACR Special Conference on Metabolism and Cancer focused on the basic biology as well as the development of targeted therapeutics that capitalize on the current understanding of key intervention points in metabolic and growth control pathways. Dr. Bert Vogelstein of Johns Hopkins University and Dr. Leonard Guarente of Massachusetts Institute of Technology presented the keynote talks at the conference. In addition to these keynote lectures, attendees participated in a series of plenary sessions and poster sessions that provided networking and collaboration-building opportunities that wouldn’t be possible without this dynamic forum.
