Cancer & Bone Society (CABS) Annual Meeting 

 Cancer and Bone Logo

The overall goal of the CABS meeting is to facilitate collaborations and knowledge transfer between clinicians and scientists working in the fields of cancer and bone biology.  To achieve this goal CABS is sponsoring a two day meeting in collaboration with the ECTS in Rome on May 14-15, 2016. 

The CABS portion of the meeting will include a Clinical Cancer and Bone Workshop on Saturday, May 14th, 2016 and a preclinical day consisting of four scientific session on Sunday May 15th, 2016.

The scientific sessions will include state of the art presentations by outstanding internationally known investigators on the genomics underlying  development of primary bone cancers and bone metastasis, mechanisms of tumor dormancy and the role of microRNAs in bone metastasis, the immunology and immunotherapy of primary bone tumors and bone metastasis and musculoskeletal effects of cancer in bone including bone pain. Each scientific session will include short presentations by authors of selected abstracts summited to the meeting. 

The target audience is clinicians and scientists working in the field of cancer and bone.

The objectives of the scientific sessions are provide a forum for these individuals to learn about the latest research as well as present their research and network with other clinicians and scientist to advance research and treatment of the effects of cancer in bone.
