With a stellar line-up the (delayed) virtual first edition of THPT21 will take place on 5-6 May 2021. Find out everything about the hurdles Tumor hete

Within a tumor, many cancer cells differ from each at the (epi-)genomic, transcriptional, and proteomic level, as well as phenotypically and functionally. Tumor heterogeneity represents a major hurdle for therapy, which may only target a subset of tumor cells. In addition, cancer cell plasticity permits rapidly adaption to therapeutics and development of tolerance and resistance, presenting additional challenges for both targeted and immunotherapies.

During this meeting, a range of academic world leaders will discuss the latest developments in basic research, translational and clinical research, and therapeutic avenues, in the following sessions:

• Plasticity in initiation, progression, and metastasis
• Heterogeneity and reprogramming of the tumor immune- and microenvironment
• Adaptation and resistance to targeted therapies
• Adaptation and resistance to immunotherapies

In addition to this program, there will be ample chances to network during the breaks, poster sessions
