Emergence of cancer cells within normal tissues provokes a myriad of host responses that affect tumor growth and progression. These responses include both cellular and non-cellular constituents that occur within the tumor stroma or tumor microenvironment. Host responses include innate and adaptive immunity, recruitment of new blood vessels and lymphatics, accumulation of mesenchymal cells/fibroblasts, extracellular matrix and exosomes. These processes create an ever evolving tumor microenvironment in which cancer cells experience further expansion in their genetic and epigenetic defects. This symposium will discuss emerging concepts in each of these areas with emphasis on basic and translational research that informs clinical development of novel therapies.

SURVIVORville is where women can learn to navigate the muddy waters of survivorship. It’s where they learn tools to help them re-enter their lives as contributing members of they families and society as a whole.
Produced by Women Survivors Alliance, SURVIVORville is held in Nashville, Tennessee, at Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. Over the past two years SURVIVORville (formerly called the National Women Survivors Convention) has welcomed nearly 2000 women from 4 countries and 49 states.
This much needed platform allows women survivors to network with one another, replacing the feeling of isolation with a sense of community. It provides education, motivation and life application for every step of survivorship, and it equips survivors with the necessary resources to create their own survivorship care plan and celebrate the 2nd Act of their lives.
