Targeting tumors – Meeting in Würzburg

FOR 2314 Targeting therapeutic windows for improved cancer therapyFor two days the DFG research consortium FOR 2314 “Targeting therapeutic windows in essential cellular processes for tumor therapy” met in Würzburg to discuss recent progress in this research endeavor and to expand the collaborative efforts to tackle cancer in new ways.

In 2015 scientists from the Universities of Tübingen and Würzburg joined forces to investigate new strategies for cancer therapy.  The aim of the group is to identify and test new molecular targets for the therapy of solid tumors. Tim Steinfatt presented the Beilhack lab’s recent progress in optical imaging of cancer progression and therapy to address essential processes in pancreatic cancer.
