The TME listserv was created to provide a means for communication for the members of the Working Group as a community. A listserv is like a mailing list -- any member of TME can send a message, which will be sent the entire Working Group. A special header identifies messages as originating from the listserv.
Examples of content that can be posted include: announcements, job opportunities, eliciting opinions on topics of interest, drawing attention to important new publications, and asking technical questions about sampling methods and assays.
You can choose to receive only one email with all of the messages for that day. This is called "digest format," and can be activated by replying to a listserv message with a blank message that just says "digest." Alternately, you can email AACR Staff at email@example.com and request the digest format.
Use of the listserv is restricted to TME members.
- Post a message by sending it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Messages sent to this address will be sent to the entire list of TME members; please do not post personal messages through the listserv.
- Please do not send attachments, as they cannot be transmitted properly.
- Messages with a blank subject line will be automatically rejected by the server.
- Please note that after posting a message, you may receive out-of-office replies sent directly to your email address. This is an automatic setting in the listserv software.
- If you receive error messages, are having technical difficulties with the listserv, please contact email@example.com.
- Messages are moderated for inappropriate material. If you have any questions about what constitutes appropriate content for the listserv, please contact the Listserv Editor, firstname.lastname@example.org.
TME contributes significantly to the development of the Annual Meeting each year through the proposal of scientific sessions to the Annual Meeting Program and Educational Committees. Additionally, for the past two years TME has hosted a joint evening scientific session on a hot topic in the tumor microenvironment. If you would like to recommend a session for development for the next Annual Meeting, write to email@example.com.
The Town Hall Meeting provides an opportunity for attendees to learn about the Working Group, meet the members of the Steering Committee, connect with old colleagues and meet new ones, learn about exciting programming, and contribute ideas to help shape future TME initiatives.
CIMM-TME Joint Evening Scientific Session: The Tumor Microenvironment and the Immune Response
It is now clear that the tumor microenvironment includes multiple innate and adaptive components of the immune system that, together with tumor and tissue components, regulate tumor formation, progression and metastasis. The Chairpersons of the Cancer Immunology and Tumor Microenvironment Working Groups jointly sponsored this evening scientific session to hear leaders from both fields present the most current view of the interactions between these fields.
Upcoming Tumor Microenvironment Special Conferences
- The Metastasis Research Society will be holding its 14th Biennial Congress from September 2 - 6, 2012, at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in Brisbane, Autralia. The AACR is a proud bronze-level sponsor of this conference.
