World-leading experts from the areas of cancer cell biology, clinical oncology, genomics and complex network data science will discuss new theoretical foundations for cancer research at this Public Event preceding the 35th Altenberg Workshop.
The KLI supports the upcoming workshop "Editing Genomes with CRISPR" that aims to discuss the potential impact and challenges while exploring the scientific, ethical, and societal issues inherent in genome-editing research.
The workshop re-assessed the scientific concepts that underpin current mainstream cancer research and started a process of integrating novel insights into a new framework of “a revised theory of cancer.”
