The Swedish Tumor Microenvironment (STorM) Program and the Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine (WCMM) invites you to the Swedish Tumor Microenvironment Meeting 2019. New discoveries and advances made in the field of tumor microenvironment (TME) research will be presented. The meeting will focus on the heterogeneity and the different roles of the microenvironment in cancer. Many aspects of the microenvironment will be discussed, including cancer-associated fibroblasts, the extracellular matrix, nerves, the immune compartment, and vasculature, with internationally recognized experts in their respective field invited to give plenary talks. In addition, ongoing TME research in Sweden will be presented through posters and short talks selected from submitted abstracts.
Scientists (clinicians and basic scientists) with an interested in the tumor microenvironment. PhD-students and post-docs are especially encouraged to attend.
