Event Overview:

Cancer remains the primary cause of mortality around the globe, and one significant aspect for the development of efficient anticancer drugs in humans is to better understand human cancer biology during the preclinical stage of drug discovery. Researchers are developing effective preclinical models to investigate tumorigenesis and other significant hallmarks of cancer, including sustaining proliferation, evading growth suppressors, resisting cell death, stimulating angiogenesis, activating invasion and metastasis, etc. In this webinar, we will review the currently available robust preclinical cancer models used by the cancer research community, along with an in-depth review of some genotoxic chemical carcinogens.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Learning about all existing and emerging preclinical cancer models and their utility in drug discovery and development.
  • Will deep dive into carcinogen induced models highlighting the advantages and limitations of each model
  • Learn how nitrosamines and related N-nitroso compounds are acting as emerging environmental carcinogens

Who Should Attend:

Basic and translational cancer researchers, preclinical pharmacologists, drug discovery researchers, contract research organizations, and knowledge seekers at all levels in the biomedical field.
