Within the context of a deep collaboration between different European basic and translational research laboratories, the TRANSMIT project aims to dissect the metabolic remodelling in human cancers, placing the focus on the role of mitochondria and bridging basic research to the improvement/development of therapeutic strategies.
A two-day scientific symposium specifically addressed to patients, their families and associations/foundations will be held in Brussels (Belgium) in January 2020.
The main goal of this conference is to exchange the most up-to-date knowledge advances regarding cancer metabolism crossing the gap/bridge between patients and researchers.
Delivering the outcomes of the TRANSMIT projects to patients and their associations and balance optimistic expectations and realistic progresses is an important task to be fulfilled.
The target audience of this symposium is patients, clinicians, and researchers. It is intended as a bidirectional and challenging communication from patients to researchers, and vice versa.
After the welcome and introduction speech, we will give the stage to the people representing the only ultimate reason for cancer research, i.e. patients and associations. Further, researchers with different expertise will share with young students and patients the deep understanding of both basic and translational research in this multifaceted challenge that is the untangling of cancer metabolism.
