Panel: Why haven’t we cured cancer?

October 28 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm

Tremendous progress has been made in the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer since the first identification of cancerous cells. Still, about ten million people die from cancer globally every year. Modern biotechnologies such as CRISPR, as well as novel computer-based approaches like artificial intelligence and the use of Big Data show promising paths to reducing the burden of this disease. Under the question “Why haven’t we cured cancer?”, we would like to introduce our conference participants to the challenges of curing cancer and to innovative ways of solving these.

With Dr. Jens Kleesiek MD PhD, Dr. Jochen Lennerz MD PhD, Dr. Mridul Agrawal MD, and Fiona Mack, PhD
