Colloques Médecine et Recherche
Cancer is still the disease that most frightens people. As a consequence, research into cancer is particularly active, to a large extent overlapping with the most fundamental research into molecular and cell biology. One of the achievements of this work has been the identification of new therapeutic targets, directly related to the mechanisms of cancer pathogenesis, which is enabling the development of more precisely directed treatments. In practice, this means that doctors are no longer simply prolonging the short-term survival of cancer patients but that cancer is becoming a chronic condition, like many other common diseases.
To consider some of the challenges posed by current cancer research, la Fondation IPSEN in collaboration with Inder Verma (Salk Institute, La Jolla, USA) has created a new series of Colloques Médecine et Recherche that is examining the fresh facets of this fast-changing science. To promote intense discussion, these meeting take place in a invited peer group. They have dealt with the following subjects:
