The Center for Cancer Research at the National Cancer Institute is hosting a two-day national symposium entitled “Inflammation, Microbiota, and Cancer.”  The program includes recent advances in the field and should be an exciting forum for discussion and debate on the current understanding of cancer and inflammation.

Learn about the latest findings from experts in the field. Sessions and speakers include:

Inflammation and Microbiota

Fiona Powrie, Julie Segre, Heidi Kong, Yasmine Belkaid, Giorgio Trinchieri, Jay Berzofsky 

Cancer,  Microbiota,  and Metabolism

Stephen Hursting, Cari Meinhold Kitahara, Bin Goa, Alfred Goldberg, Luigi Ferrucci, Martin Blaser 

miRNAs, Cancer and Inflammation

Carlo Croce, Curt Harris, Xin Wang, Shyam Sharan, Howard Young, Kevin Struhl, Stuart Yuspa, Yinling Hu

Colon Cancer, Inflammation and Immunity

Raymond Dubois, Jerome Galon, Myriam Merad, Thirunula-Devi Kanneganti, Richard Flavell, Tyler Jacks
