This International Symposium was held at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) Communication Center and is hosted by
the 'DKFZ-ZMBH Alliance' and the 'Verein für Wissenschaftliche Fachtagungen in der Biomedizin e.V.' (VWFB)
The DKFZ-ZMBH-Alliance is a strategic alliance of the Research Program Cell and Tumor Biology of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ, member of the Helmholtz Association) and the Center for
Molecular Biology of the Ruprecht-Karls-University of Heidelberg (ZMBH) with a main focus on basic research in the area of molecular life sciences. This concept combines advantages of both
institutions and creates a particularly attractive research environment.
