Cancer, Multicellularity, and Complex Systems Symposium
In celebration of over 250 years of support for interdisciplinary collaboration within the realm of science, we are bringing together experts from the fields of evolutionary, tumor and stem cell biology, as well as geobiology, virology, and physics to discuss what we collectively do - and do not yet - know about cancer and multicellularity from an evolutionary perspective.
Over the course of this two-day symposium, talks and discussions will take place on the topics of Transitions in Nature, Heterogeneity & Radiations, Added Complexity, and Exploiting the Evolutionary Game.
We welcome scientists from all fields to join these discussions, with junior scientists encouraged to join. Participation comes with a fee which covers lunch over the course of the two days.
Location: These sessions will take place in the 'Piratensalen' at the Grand Hotel in Lund, Sweden.
Date: 06 - 07 September, 2022
Cost: 800kr, covering lunch over the course of the two days.
We hope that you will join us in rethinking how we approach cancer and its development - register today!
An opening keynote and panel discussion on how we could understand cancer and the evolution of multicellular life with new eyes, will take place from 15:00-18:00 on 05 September, 2022. This event is open to all registered participants and the wider public. Find out more!
