Overview

Our proposed Cancer and Bone scientific program will present the most recent cutting edge advances in cancer-induced bone disease research and provide an important venue for established and young investigators to network and present their newest research.

Session topics will include:

  • Tumor Dormancy
  • Skeletal Effects of Cancer in Bone
  • Fat Cells, Adipokines, and Metabolism
  • New Models for Cancer and Bone / Bone Biomechanics
  • Genomics and Immunoncology of Bone Metastases (clinical focus)
  • New Therapeutic Approaches in the Clinical Management of Cancer in Bone (clinical focus)



Objectives
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
  1. Take shared science advances and apply to clinical concepts;
  2. Recognize models of tumor cell dormancy and activation;
  3. Investigate skeletal effects of cancer in bone;
  4. Explore connections between fat cells, adipokines, and metabolism;
  5. Describe other cells affecting tumor growth in bone and bone pain;
  6. Discuss new models for cancer and bone/ bone biomechanics;
  7. Identify genomics and immunology of bone metastases;
  8. Summarize new therapeutic approaches in the clinical management of cancer in bone.
