Cell Signaling and Intracellular Trafficking in Cancer Biology: Interplay, Targeting and Therapy

21—24 October 2019

Molecular Biotechnology Centre, Turin, Italy

A Biochemical Society Scientific Meeting


The interplay between cell signaling and intracellular trafficking is implicated in fundamental cellular processes including cell growth and motility, whereas aberrant membrane trafficking events and signaling pathways are frequently associated with malignant transformation and cancer.


The aim of this scientific conference is to merge advanced topics in cancer cell signaling together with emerging research themes in lipid metabolism, intracellular organelles and membrane trafficking. We will discuss oncogenic pathways and signaling networks as therapeutic targets and highlight their regulation by endomembranes and trafficking events.


The attendants will be exposed to the most advanced topics at the interface between oncogenic signaling and membrane trafficking including: 


  1. Phosphoinositides Signaling and conversion in the endolysosomal system
  2. Lysosomal signaling, Iron Metabolism and Ferroptosis
  3. RTK signaling and RTK-associated drug resistance (cMet, AXL, EGFR etc)
  4. Non-receptor tyrosine kinases and integrin trafficking
  5. System analysis of Signaling networks in cancer and targeted therapies.
  6. EMT, Stemness, and Metastasis   


Topics in this meeting may be invited to submit to our journal, Biochemical Society Transactions, or other publication published by Portland Press, the wholly-owned trading subsidiary of the Biochemical Society.


Registration and abstract submission opening soon. Sign up for registration alerts via the Register button.

Abstract deadline: to be announced.


Earlybird registration deadline: to be announced.


Oral communication slots will be available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication.


Student Bursaries are available for this meeting.
