On October 24th 2019, we will host an international symposium on “Targeting
Defective DNA Repair in Breast Cancer.” This initiative is driven by the excellent local
scientific environment on DNA repair and breast cancer research. We are extremely excited to have
recruited Europe’s top scientists in the field for this symposium - Sabine Linn, Jos
Jonkers, Chris Lord, Sven Rottenberg and Andrew Tutt - alongside our outstanding local scientists.
Our aims for this symposium are to:
(1) leverage our expertise in the field to form a local alliance here in Cologne and
(2) form strong scientific alliances with our invited speakers from abroad.
The overarching aim will be to decipher molecular mechanisms of breast cancer tumorigenesis in order to develop targeted treatments for our patients.
We are looking forward to your participation. A pre-registration is not necessary.
Venue: Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing (Auditorium) Joseph-Stelzmann-Straße 9B, 50931 Cologne, Germany
Organizing committee: Christian Reinhardt, Ron Jachimowicz, Julian Puppe
