In the past few years the field of cancer metabolism has moved into the spotlight of cancer research and into the heart of the bio-industrial world.

In this workshop we will cover the field of cancer metabolism extensively, and discuss the link between cell signalling and metabolism, as well as metabolic adaptations of cancer cells to autonomous proliferative demands and environmental stresses. We are bringing together leading researchers in the cancer metabolism field in hopes of generating a vibrant scientific and social atmosphere to allow for informal interactions among participants.
