Second Announcement
INsPiRE International Workshop on:
Oncogenic Pathways and Antitumor Responses

The University of Athens Cancer Research Group has the pleasure to invite you to the International Workshop on: Oncogenic Pathways and Antitumor Responses, which will be held in Athens, Greece on April 23-25, 2014.

The aim of this meeting is to present the latest cutting-edge research activity of distinguished invited speakers from Europe and overseas in the stimulating fields of oncogenic signaling in cancer; replication stress, repair and genomic instability; apoptosis, senescence and autophagy in cancer; tissue repair and cancer environment; cancer biomarkers.

The workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of the latest information and ideas between participating scientists and young investigators, which will facilitate establishing contacts for new collaborations.
