Mechanisms and Consequences of Chromosomal Translocations in Cancer

12 short talks will be selected among the abstracts submitted


The topic of the meeting “Mechanisms and Consequences of Chromosomal Translocations” covers the basic and translational aspects of chromosomal translocations in cancers. The aim of this meeting is to share the latest findings on chromosomal translocations, with major implications in our understanding of cancer etiology, onset, evolution and therapy resistance.

The meeting will be organized in three sessions:

  1. Origins and mechanisms of chromosomal translocation formation
  2. Toward a faithful modelling of chromosomal translocations
  3. Diseases, functional consequences and treatment perspectives

Time will be dedicated to discussions with the aim to foster new ideas and collaborative projects. Finally, we will provide opportunities for oral and poster presentations for young scientists.
