Ludwig researchers will deliver two-dozen presentations, and chair or participate in several symposia, educational sessions and meet-the-expert sessions.
“AACR is a premier forum for our researchers to exchange information with their colleagues on the molecular underpinnings of cancer, and strategies for translating such insights into new cancer therapies,” said David Lane, PhD, Scientific Director, Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research. “We look forward to the meeting. It is an opportunity to forge collaborations across institutions that are ultimately of benefit to cancer patients.”
Ludwig scientists will deliver presentations and share new data at the meeting on subjects ranging from cancer genomics to immunotherapy to the cellular and molecular biology of metastasis. Visit our website or click here for a comprehensive list of Ludwig presentations.
