Symposium on Proteases and the Tumori Microenvironment
The First International Symposium on Proteases and the Tumori Microenvironment (Proteases in TiME 2017) was held from Monday 24th to Wednesday 26th July 2017 at the Monash University Prato Centre, Italy.
The meeting focused not only on the increasingly complex proteolytic network remodelling the extracellular matrix of the tumour microenvironment but also the signalling pathways initiated by protease action. The complex interplay between the invading cancer cell and stromal/vascular compartments, and the novel 3D bioengineered models that have been recently developed to interrogate these interactions, was also a feature of the symposium.
Thank you to all delegates, speakers and sponsor representatives who attended and participated in the Proteases in TiME 2017 conference. The meeting was a great success and we look forward to welcoming you to the next event!
