The theme of the Conference Cancer-2019 is "New strategies to prevent, diagnose and treat Cancer based on Precision Medicine”. The Conference will focus on the biomolecular mechanisms of cancer development, on the altered energetic metabolism in cancer cells, on the cancer patient’s metabolic alterations, and on the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. Major topics include: Pathogenetic mechanisms (oncogenes, oncosuppressors, DNA repair, cancer stem cells, epigenetics, inflammation, immune responses); Metabolism (Nutrition, Fasting, Obesity) and Cancer; Novel strategies for Prevention, Diagnosis and Therapy (imaging, Phytochemicals, nanotheranostics).The conference will gather academicians and young inspired scientists from all around the world with the aim to strengthen the international cooperation in the fight against Cancer. One other major goal of this Conference is, in fact, to create an atmosphere of interactions between young and senior scientists to favor novel cooperation that shall bring to new and more efficacious strategies to understand and fight cancer.
