Dissecting Systemic Mediators of Cancer Therapy Resistance and Metastasis


November 26, 2012, 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Fralin Biomedical Research Institute, R3012
2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016

Metastasis is an ominous feature of cancer that involves dissemination of cancer cells from a primary site of origin to outgrowth at a distant organ. The major impediment to cure metastatic cancer is the emergence of resistance to the majority of standard-of-care therapies. This talk will focus on dissecting systemic mediators of both chemoresistance and metastasis that can be potentially targeted to improve therapeutic outcome.
