This AACR Special Conference will feature presentations on the most recent findings in cancer metastasis. Sessions will feature presentations on metabolic adaptations, epigenetic plasticity, genomic changes, circulating cancer cells, microenvironment, and dormancy. Sessions will also address routes of metastasis, signaling, and genetic instability. In addition to presentations on the basic science of metastasis, top researchers will also address the implications of these findings on the development of novel approaches for detecting, tracking, and treating metastatic cancer. This conference will provide a unique opportunity for exchanges between a wide array of investigators, including basic scientists, translational researchers, and those in the clinic. Make plans now to attend this exciting conference.
