It is our pleasure to welcome you to the second EACR-AACR-SIC Special Conference “The Challenges of Optimising Immuno and Targeted Therapies: From Cancer Biology to the Clinic” to be held on 24-27 June 2017 in Florence, Italy.

Hosted by the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR), the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and the Italian Cancer Society (SIC), the EACR-AACR-SIC Special Conference 2017 will build on the success of the previous conference, which was widely praised for the quality of its programme and inspirational contributions.

The conference format is designed to bring together basic, translational and clinical researchers, as well as researchers working on the development of new targeted therapeutics. Leading experts will present the latest achievements of multidisciplinary research dealing with drug action and resistance and highlight challenges that require a concerted multidisciplinary effort.
