Christophe Mérieux Conference: New Trends in Tumor Virology

21 October 2009, Annecy (France)

Fondation Mérieux is organizing the upcoming International Scientific Conference entitled: Christophe Mérieux Conference: New Trends in Tumor Virology

Venue: Fondation Mérieux Conference Center, les Pensières, Veyrier-du-lac (France)
Date: 17 - 19 January 2010

This conference aims at reviewing the knowledge regarding tumor virology. Indeed, more than 25% of cancers are associated with infections, and particularly viral infections. The objective of this meeting is to better understand the public health impact of virus-induced cancers and to gain insight into the mechanism of virus-induced cancer transformation, to devise new strategies of cancer prevention and treatment.

About 120 scientists and clinicians from all the continents will share their knowledge and experience in order to define the most adapted strategies to improve the management of virus-induced cancers. PhD students are invited to present a poster during the dedicated sessions.
