25 Feb 2013 - 26 Feb 2013 - Las Vegas, NV, USA



Bookmark and Share


With the rapid progression of molecular biology and genetics, and the subsequent emergence of many new targets, emerging targets & therapeutics provides new opportunities for the prevention and treatment of several major disease systems. The 4th Cancer Targets & Therapeutics Conference, taking place on February 25-26, 2013 in Las Vegas, NV, examines new and emerging targets and therapeutics in the area of cancer research. Speakers at the event provide case studies in order to address some of the issues surrounding target-based drug discovery and development.

Preliminary Sessions for 2013 Agenda:

-Novel Kinase Inhibitors & Beyond the Kinome 

-Functional Genomics & Future Cancer targets 

-Novel Antibody-based Modalities 

-Progress in Cancer Immunotherapy

-Cancer Stem Cells, Metabolism, Cancer Epigenetics 

-Patient Selection Rationale & Strategy

This conference is part of our 2nd Novel Cancer Therapeutics Summit which consists of two other concurrent conferences shown below:

2nd Novel Cancer Therapeutics Summit:

Track: 4th Cancer Targets & Therapeutics

Track: 2nd Oncology Partnering & Deal-making

Track: 3rd Ubiquitin Research & Drug Discovery 

Sign up for the Summit Pass to have access to all tracks of the summit!

A comparison of synthetic gene-activating Cas9 proteins can help guide research and development of therapeutic approaches.
Testing Non-Breast/Ovarian Cancer Genes
Researchers have found that expanding gene panel beyond breast/ovarian cancer genes in these patients does not add any clinical benefit. Instead, testing has produced more questions than answers.
Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells Play Role in Tumor Growth
Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine have reported a new mechanism that helps cancer cells engage myeloid-derived suppressor cells.
