  • Thursday, 17 October 2019 to Saturday, 19 October 2019

    Cancer metabolism has been attracting attention of researchers and clinicians during the latest years, being recognized as a promising target for cancer therapy. In addition, metabolic rewiring has been identified as a mechanism of resistance to both classical and targeted therapy. In this meeting, we have set a comprehensive program that tackles the many faces of cancer metabolism, highlighting the recent advances in the field and the road ahead for clinical translation. This year, we have the honor to count with the presence of several leading experts in the field and Prof... [read more]

Tuesday, 28 April 2009 to Wednesday, 29 April 2009

This first meeting of the ISPDC explored the main aspects of the revolutionary change that is taking place in the understanding of cancer etiology, etiopathogenesis and treatment of all malignant diseases. It is becoming increasingly evident that a chronic destruction of cellular homeostasis as represented by a cancer-specific intracellular alkalinisation, as well as its consequences at... [read more]
