Targeting Cancer Pathways Series

Cell Signaling Technology is proud to partner with the Koch Institute at MIT to present this Annual Symposium, which brings together cancer research thought leaders from around the world to share current findings and further research community collaboration.

This year the symposium will include three live webinars spaced throughout the year and will culminate, in November 2015, with a live webcast event onsite at the Koch Institute at MIT.

Speakers will focus on the cancer pathways that support tumor development, the emerging research in identifying and targeting these pathways, and innovations in the development of increasingly effective cancer therapy options. 

October 22nd, 2014. Mechanisms of Tumor Resistance

Here, we will examine how the rewiring of signaling pathways, in response to drug treatment, contributes to tumor resistance and how this knowledge can inform the development of more effective treatment strategies.

During this webinar, viewers will:

  • Gain an understanding of the specific molecules and pathways that are the targets for rationally designed therapies
  • Learn about development of the first FDA-approved therapy targeting a hyperactive kinase
  • Review mechanisms by which tumor cells resist inhibitors that target the PI3K cell survival pathway or the EGFR receptor
  • Hear how the rewiring of cell death pathways can sensitize cells to traditional chemotherapy agents
  • Have their questions answered live by the expert panel.
