Next to cardiovascular diseases in the EU, cancer is the leading cause of death and one of the major contributors to premature deaths. In 2016, one quarter (26.0%, 13 million people) of the total number of deaths in Europe were caused by cancer.
The EC has taken a strong stand in the fight against cancer with the inception of its Europe Beating Cancer Plan and the Cancer Mission area for Horizon Europe framework beginning in 2021.
Mouse models are used in cancer research to explore the causality between cancer genes and carcinogenesis, and as models to develop and test novel therapies. Mouse models have become ideal models for precise individualized cancer therapy thanks to the advancements in CRISPR/Cas9-mediated genome editing, patient xenograft implantation and microbiota studies.
The INFRAFRONTIER Conference 2020 ‘Targeting Cancer with Animal Models’ aims to showcase such innovative animal models used in cancer research and also introduce the Cancer Mission Board to the cancer research community.
The main objectives of this conference will be to:
• Present latest research on innovative cancer models
• Showcase INFRAFRONTIER services for cancer research
• Align the scientific strategy on cancer mouse models with the Horizon Europe Cancer Mission
