The Italian Society of Cancerology (SIC) is the main and oldest association of researchers in the field of Oncology that operates in our country. Primary purpose of the Company, as established by the Art. 2 of the Statute, is to “bring together the lovers of Cancerology and Operators working in the national Oncological field, with the aim to develop this discipline in the experimental, clinical and social fields, facilitating relations between clinicians and pre-clinical researchers, between Universities , Institutions and Specialized Centers “.

Among the many activities undertaken by SIC in over sixty years of life, the most demanding is certainly the organization of the SIC Conference.

The conference will take place on 03-04 DECEMBER 2020 and will have the theme “Precision medicine: from cancer biology to clinical trials”. Given the pandemic emergency and the resulting restrictions, the congress will be performed in an online format but we expect this will contribute to the participation of an even larger audience.

In fact, about 500 researchers and oncologists from all over the country are expected to participate. Experts in the fields of clinical and molecular oncology from all over the world will discuss and update on the most recent acquisitions relating to the basic mechanisms involved in neoplastic transformation, translational studies on the validation of biomarkers and molecular targets and clinical trials with biological and innovative immunotherapy therapies.

The various sessions will deal with topics such as the state of the art of precision medicine in oncology and resistance mechanisms of drugs, the role of epigenetics and metabolism as possible targets for therapeutic intervention, the role of the microenvironment and the current development of the immunotherapy. The event will consist of symposia and main lectures.

The qualifying element of the 2020 Conference is represented by the presence of a significant number of speakers from foreign countries, both European and non-European.
