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!

Retractable Protein Nanoneedles
The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in synthetic biology; a new study from researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School (HMS) introduces a novel mechanical method for controlling release of molecules inside cells.
Leukemia’s Surroundings Key to its Growth
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a type of cancer found primarily in children can grow only when signaled to do so by other nearby cells that are noncancerous.
Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell
By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.
‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer
A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.
Genetic Mutation that Prevents Diabetes Complications
The most significant complications of diabetes include diabetic retinal disease, or retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. Both involve damaged capillaries.
A Crystal Clear View of Biomolecules
Fundamental discovery triggers paradigm shift in crystallography.
Could the Food we Eat Affect Our Genes?
Almost all of our genes may be influenced by the food we eat, according to new research.
NIH Seeks Research Applications to Study Zika in Pregnancy, Developing Fetus
Institute has announced that the new effort seeks to understand virus effect on reproduction and child development.
Iron in the Blood Could Cause Cell Damage
Concentrations of iron similar to those delivered through standard treatments can trigger DNA damage within 10 minutes, when given to cells in the laboratory.
