It is becoming increasingly well appreciated that cancers are complex and dynamic ecosystems that evolve in response to selection pressures from their environment. The aim of this conference is to move away from the simplistic view of cancer evolution as a merely genetic phenomenon and to discuss instead how microenvironmental, immune, genetic and epigenetic heterogeneity interact to influence cancer progression and therapy success or failure. By promoting the exchange of novel ideas and information between basic scientists, physicians, and other health professionals, this conference will enhance the understanding of cancer evolution and make progress toward improved treatments.
