6th Familial Cancer Conference

Not eligible for ESCO credits

05.06.2014  -  06.06.2014

Madrid, Spain

CONFERENCE

Medical / clinical oncology

Description

 Chairs: R. Eeeles, UK - H. Vasen, NL - J. Benitez, ES

 

 

The 6th Familial Cancer Conference hosted once again at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) aims to present the advances in this field from a multidisciplinary point of view. As you know, familial cancer has become an important challenge for oncologists, geneticists, molecular biologists and other professionals, due to its implications not only at the individual but also at the familial and social level. This type of cancers affect several members of a single family, being the identification of high risk families, the knowledge of the genes responsible for specific diseases and their biological functions, the clinical follow up of mutation carriers, the development of new treatments and the discovery of tailored drugs, some of the different challenges involved. In most of countries, the number of professionals working in familial cancer has increased in the last years, demonstrating the interest that has woke up in our society. The Conference wants not only to cover and update numerous topics related to these genetic diseases but also to be a forum of discussion and meeting for professionals, either experienced clinicians and scientists or young people that are starting to work, or just interested in this exiting world.
Thank you all for coming to Madrid and we hope you enjoy a pleasant and successful Conference.

Javier Benitez, Hans Vasen, Rosalind Eeles


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

• To update recent advances in familial cancer
• To better define the genetic profile of these cancers and the clinical management of families and patients.
• To depth in the new therapeutic strategies based in animal models
• To analyze the impact of the new technologies and their contribution to familial cancer risk

MAIN TOPICS 
• General concepts in familial cancer; genetic variants and familial cancer; genetic counseling
• Common cancers: The family of breast cancer genes; selection criteria and clinical management; new treatments based in animal models and massive sequencing; colorectal cancer and prostate cancer; genetic and clinical management.
• Other hereditary syndromes: Familial pheocromocitoma; pancreatic cancer; PTEN-Hamartoma syndromes; familial renal carcinoma; familial melanoma; li Fraumeni syndrome; gastric carcinoid; Fanconi anemia
• New technologies applied to research and clinical diagnosis; the role of Consortia in massive sequencing; what to do with the incidental findings?
