The 18th meeting of the "Cancer Biology Research Center" held at Hacienda Forest View Hotel, in the heart of Galilee between May 9th and 11th 2018.
We would like to welcome all the Tel Aviv University scientific and clinical groups, working in the field of cancer research to take part in this unique event. It is primarily aimed to advance research and promote collaboration between researchers, clinicians, students, and members of the medical centers at Tel Aviv University to further increase our understanding of the disease.
As in the former events, we are privileged to host two distinguished scientists – Prof. Anthoni Ribas from UCLA – a key opinion leader on immunotherapy and Prof. Tanja de Gruijl, an expert in Translational Tumor Immunology from the Cancer Center in Amsterdam, who will deliver keynote lectures. Top ranking Israeli clinicians and scientists will cover the latest topics in the field such as cancer diagnosis, micro-environment, therapy and personalized medicines. It is also an important forum for research students to present their work and meet with colleagues and senior scientists. Outstanding abstracts sent by students will be selected for lectures and a poster session will present the latest research projects.
Through informal meetings, conversations around the dinner table, and exciting social events, we are expecting a successful conference. The meeting is supported by generous contributions of some of the leading international and local pharmaceutical companies as well as the Dotan Foundation, and non-profit organizations such as the Israeli Cancer Association.
