Major brain cancer research events 2015

A list of some of the major events in brain cancer research coming up in 2015.

ESMO Personalised Medicine Symposium on Signalling Pathways in Cancer

The 2015 Symposium will concentrate on targeting the MAPK pathway: from RAS to MEK. The programme will cover pre-clinical data and genetics relevant for the understanding of the functional mechanisms in the RAS/ERK/MEK pathway, regulation of MAPK signalling, the rationale and strategies to inhibiting the pathway, biomarkers, mechanisms of resistance, as well as how to overcome it, and some important interactions with other pathways.
