Main content

The Centre for Cancer Biomarkers (CCBIO) is a Norwegian Centre of Excellence established at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry in 2013. CCBIO works on cancer biomarkers and tailored treatment. The researchers have a special focus on tumor-microenvironment interactions and their importance for metastatic spread and aggressive disease.


Third annual symposium

CCBIO arranges its third annual symposium at Solstrand 19th-20th May 2015. Similarly to the symposium last year, this year's CCBIOs symposium is a combination of invited international and national speakers and two long poster sessions during which younger researchers present their research. The selection of which participants that can present their posters is done on the basis of the submitted abstracts.


Renowned speakers

We have a very exciting program for you this year, including presentations on the tumor microenvironment, epithelial-mesenchymal transition, tumor plasticity and cancer stem cell phenotypes, various cancer models, imaging modalities, liquid biopsy, treatment and trials,  and a very important session on ethics and economics. Do not miss this opportunity to meet the experts.

Among the international speakers you will this year find names such as Jean Paul Thiery, Thomas Brabletz, Randolph Watnick, John Cairns, Thorarinn Gudjonsson, David Tuveson, Arne Östman, Ravi Bhatia and Klaus Pantel.
