This AACR Special Conference, attended by over 500 researchers from nearly 30 different countries, addressed all aspects of tumor metastasis through presentations from scientific experts performing innovative research in basic, translational, and clinical science. In addition to lectures from distinguished scientists and short proffered talks from early-career scientists, the program also featured a special panel discussion on “Cancer Stem Cells and Metastasis.” Session topics covered the latest findings on tumor microenvironment, imaging, cancer stem cells, metastatic signatures, dormancy, and potential agents for therapy and prevention with a goal for detection and control of established metastases.
