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!

Scientists Find Evidence That Cancer Can Arise Changes
Researchers at Rockefeller University have found a mutation that affects the proteins that package DNA without changing the DNA itself can cause a rare form of cancer.
Developing a More Precise Seasonal Flu Vaccine
During the 2014-15 flu season, the poor match between the virus used to make the world’s vaccine stocks and the circulating seasonal virus yielded a vaccine that was less than 20 percent effective.
A Peachy Defense System for Seeds
ETH chemists are developing a new coating method to protect seeds from being eaten by insects. In doing so, they have drawn inspiration from the humble peach and a few of its peers.
Fighting Cancer with Borrowed Immunity
A new step in cancer immunotherapy: researchers from the Netherlands Cancer Institute and University of Oslo/Oslo University Hospital show that even if one's own immune cells cannot recognize and fight their tumors, someone else's immune cells might.
Modified Microalgae Converts Sunlight into Valuable Medicine
A special type of microalgae can soon produce valuable chemicals such as cancer treatment drugs and much more just by harnessing energy from the sun.

Loss Of Y Chromosome Increases Risk Of Alzheimer’s
Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This is in addition to an increased risk of death from other causes, including many cancers. These new findings by researchers at Uppsala University could lead to a simple test to identify those at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Making Virus Sensors Cheap and Simple
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin demonstrated the ability to detect single viruses in a solution containing murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV).
