Symposium: A quest towards curing childhood cancer by pinpointing better molecular biomarkers

2017-05-0808:30 Kungliga Myntkabinettet, hörsalen, Gamla StanOther

A two day symposium 8-9th May

Every year around 300 children get cancer in Sweden. Some get cancer because of genetic causes, others get cancer because of factors in their surrounding nature, while some seem to get cancer because of a combination of genetic and environmental factors. A better understanding of how cancer develops can help us to find individual cares/cures for every patient. Biomarkers will help us identify cancer in an early stage as well as the exact nature of the cancer. Extracellular vesicles and better identification of immune cells for immunotherapy will also improve therapies of cancer in the future
