NDDO and ESMO are joined by US National Cancer Institute in conference series on targeted cancer therapies

08.03.2007
The announcement of the collaboration between the NDDO Research Foundation, NCI and ESMO was made at the 5th International Symposium on Targeted Anticancer Therapies (TAT 2007) in Amsterdam today.

The announcement comes after the appointment of Professor Giuseppe Giaccone, President of the TAT series’ Organizing Committee, as the new Chief of the Medical Oncology Branch in the Center for Cancer Research at the NCI.

NCI will be joining a conference series that has established its reputation, in particular, in the field of early-phase clinical trials and translational research of targeted agents for cancer therapy. John E. Niederhuber, M.D., NCI Director and NCI staff will join the Organizing Committee and the Scientific Advisory Board of the TAT series as of TAT 2008.

Professor Håkan Mellstedt, ESMO’s President, said that ESMO fully supports the expansion of the partnership to include the NCI, as this will further broaden the scientific basis for the conference series and will help strengthen the ties between two of the leading organizations in cancer research and patient care in Europe and the USA.

Dr. Coenraad van Kalken, Director NDDO Research Foundation, views the current development as a logical next step in the maturation of the TAT series and the NDDO Research Foundation as a whole: “The NDDO Research Foundation not only organizes conferences like the TAT meetings, we also support a range of new initiatives in the fields of early diagnosis and prevention of cancer. Therefore, our association with ESMO and NCI through the TAT series may prove beneficial for other NDDO-supported activities as well”.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
