A common effort needs to be directed toward cancer control and prevention. Research in the field is uncovering aspects of cancer behavior which are key to fine-tuning therapeutic strategies.
Immunometabolism, ICoMI2022’s main theme, has shown that the metabolism of cancer cells is altered, allowing for immunosuppression and thus cancer progression. The immune system is a crucial weapon against uncontrolled cell proliferation and should thus be taken into account when defining prevention and treatment strategies.
Come to ICoMI2022 to learn more about immunometabolic research on cancer. Immunity should not be forgotten just as cancer research ought to be supported. It is a common cause.
