Origins of Cancer

Beyond the Margins: Exploring the Tumor Macroenvironment

WHEN July 23-July 24, 2020 12:00 p.m.
WHERE Virtual Format

Origins of Cancer is a scientific symposium that brings together students, scientists and medical professionals to discuss the latest breakthroughs in cancer research. This year’s meeting will highlight the tumor macroenvironment, which comprises near and far cells, tissues and systems that interact with primary cancer cells to promote tumor survival. Invited speakers also will discuss novel and integrative treatment approaches that target this larger interactome to outsmart cancer cells.

In the interest of everyone’s safety, the Origins of Cancer Scientific Organizing Committee has decided to adopt a virtual format for the 2020 Origins of Cancer symposium. With this conversion to a virtual meeting, the agenda will now be split between two partial days, Thursday, July 23 and Friday, July 24, to facilitate audience participation across several time zones.

Registration for the symposium is now closed. Please continue to check the regularly updated FAQ page for additional details. For questions, or to be added to our email list, please contact Beth Resau at
