During the symposium, world-class experts will share their views and thoughts on their journey against cancer from multiple points of view: cell biology, immunology, genetics, epigenetics and computational biology, among others. Together, we will gather an interdisciplinary representation of the finest researchers, from the basic and clinical sciences, to present their latest publications and discuss with their peers openly. The latest technologies like single cell analysis, next generation sequencing and genome editing will be also key players of the event, with experts on the field commenting on the endless possibilities they open for research and diagnosis.
