Call for Early Career Investigator and Underrepresented Minority Travel Fellowship Applications: Targeting VEGF-Mediated Tumor Angiogenesis in Cancer Therapy
June 19 - 20, 2014 The New York Academy of Sciences
A decade after the first cancer drug targeting VEGF signaling in tumor blood vessel formation received approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), significant effort has been dedicated toward progressing the research, development, and clinical application of anti-angiogenic cancer therapies. Drawing on lessons learned from successes and failures, this conference will examine ways to improve cancer therapy by addressing urgent issues such as:
i. inherent /acquired resistance,
iii. enhanced invasiveness / metastasis, and
iv. lack of validated predictive and prognostic biomarkers.
Presentations, including a keynote lecture by Harold F. Dvorak, MD, will explore VEGF-dependent and alternative mechanisms of angiogenesis. “Point–Counterpoint” debates between leading experts will aim to resolve controversies regarding the function of vascular normalization, treatment-induced metastasis, and the validity of hypertension as a physiological biomarker.
The deadline for submission of applications is Friday, April 4, 2014.
Applications are invited from qualified early career investigators and early career investigators from underrepresented minorities. For detailed information on eligibility and application instructions, please send an email to Angiogenesis2014@nyas.org with the words "Fellowship Information" in the subject line. There is no need to type a message; instructions will be forwarded automatically. Please call 212.298.8698 with any questions.
