Call For Papers

At present, we intend to host the Cell-NCI Symposium: Beyond Cancer Genomics Toward Precision Oncology according to COVID-secure guidelines onsite in Bethesda, MD, USA, October 4–6, 2021 to best facilitate in-person networking and learning.

However, as the future situation regarding international travel remains uncertain, we have the option to switch to our fully interactive online conference platform should the need arise.

Rest assured that we will refund your onsite registration fee, with no penalty should you wish to cancel during the uncertainty of the outbreak.

Enormous volumes of data have been generated by the comprehensive genomic and molecular characterization of several cancer types. While insights gleaned from this data have led to some impressive advances in treating subsets of cancer patients, the full clinical potential has yet to be realized. To help address this challenge, the Cancer Target Discovery and Development (CTD2) initiative aims to build on the fundamental findings generated from genomic initiatives and exploit this knowledge in a clinically relevant context.

The Cell-NCI Symposium: Beyond Cancer Genomics Toward Precision Oncology will showcase recent cancer research using multi-omics approaches to guide functional characterization and assessment of candidate therapeutic targets. The meeting will feature the latest advances in functional genomic approaches, both computational and experimental, and show how deep data analyses and high-throughput approaches are reshaping our understanding of fundamental cancer biology mechanisms and impacting clinical oncology. Our aim is to bring together participants from both within and outside of the CTD2 Network to stimulate exciting discussions, promote cross-pollination of ideas, and accelerate the translation of multi-omic cancer data to precision medicine.

Session themes:

Cancer systems and integrative biology
Drug resistance and mechanism of action
Systems and multi-omics approaches to study cancer heterogeneity
Systems and multi-omics approaches to study cancer immunology
Clinical biomarkers and targeted therapies for precision oncology
