2nd International Symposium on Prognostic and Therapeutic Implications of RKIP in Cancer

9–10th May 2019 | Heraklion, Crete, Greece

About the symposium

The First International Workshop on “Prognostic and Therapeutic Implications of RKIP in Cancer’” was held at UCLA in Los Angeles in March 2010. During this last decade, a plethora of new research investigations has emerged on the biology and functional roles of Raf-1 Kinase Inhibitory Protein (RKIP) in cancer. Therefore, the Second International Symposium “Prognostic and Therapeutic Implications of RKIP in Cancer”’ was organized and will be held on May 9-10, 2019 in Heraklion, Crete, Greece.

The symposium has three major goals

  • To discuss novel biochemical and molecular advances of the involvement of RKIP in the pathogenesis of cancer, and its response to treatments.
  • To explore different options that could be employed to materialize the potential of targeting (activating) RKIP expression for anti-tumoral and anti-metastatic therapies.
  • To facilitate scientific and collaborative interactions and encourage the establishment of lasting professional relationships among researchers investigating the role of RKIP in cancer.

Τhe symposium program consists of world-renowned scientists (speakers/discussants) from the Life Sciences who have been investigating RKIP at the biochemical, molecular and genetic levels.  All scientific sessions are open to all interested participants.
There is no registration fee; however, online registration is mandatory prior to the meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you to Heraklion!
