4th Metabolism and Cancer Symposium

Date(s) - 27 Mai. 2021 - 29 Mai. 2021
Toute la journée

The upcoming 4th edition of Metabolism and Cancer symposium (100% numérique), May 27-29th 2021, will address key questions on human tumors nutrition and metabolism, including redox and hypoxia states, metabolic control of epigenome, mitochondrial function and modulation, signaling & fueling of cancer with diagnosis and therapeutic implications. We are honoured and privileged to welcome as special guest of this symposium Sir Peter J. Ratcliffe, Nobel co-Laureate in 2019 for his work on the utilization of oxygen by cancer cells and hypoxia.

Four main scientific sessions are proposed to highlight recent discoveries in the continuum of tumor energetics, ranging from patient’s diet optimization to tumor utilization of nutriments and oxygen for growth and survival. Influence of tumor fueling on the success of chemo- or immuno-therapies, tumor metabolic heterogeneity and communication with the adjacent non-cancer tissue will also be discussed. A closing session will bring together nutritionists, oncologists, cancer metabolism fundamental scientists and patients to discuss a topic of major interest for everyone: what is the impact of our diet on cancer?

This 4th edition is organized in collaboration by SIRIC Brio, Cancéropôle GSO & Club MétaboCancer, Réseau NACRe (National Alimentation Cancer Recherche), Bordeaux University Department of Life Sciences, Oncosphère, Région Nouvelle Aquitaine, INSERM and « collectif Asperon ».
