EHA-ESH Scientific Workshops present state-of-the-art science. This workshop promotes informal interaction and discussion between scientists and clinicians working in the field.
The identification of cancer stem cells (CSC) in hematological diseases and in solid tumors, has led to the emergence of a new field in cancer research that is expected to provide insights into oncogenesis and hope for improved survival and cure. Recent research has highlighted the opportunity to target cells of the stem cell’s microenvironment. This workshop will provide the latest findings on the microenvironnement (bone, vasculature ...) of the normal and malignant stem cells and the tools to study the links between the stem cell and the cells of its microenvironement.
This workshop will cover the following topics:
Vascularisation and CSC
Tumor/CSC and Immunity
Skeletal and HSC niches in Bone
CSC and their niche
HSC/LSC and their niche
Solid Cancer Stem Cell and their niche
CSC and Metastasis
CSC/LSC and Hypoxia
