Topics Covered: - Cellular responses to checkpoint activation in G2 and mitosis - Targeting mitotic pathways in cancer therapy - The mitotic checkpoint and cancer

Conference Objectives: The deadly essence of cancer cells is their ability to divide unrestrictedly. For long, anti-mitotic drugs have been used in cancer therapy yet surprisingly little is known about the molecular mechanisms underlying their therapeutic effects. This symposium aims to bring together experts of mitosis and translational cancer research, to work on understanding how mitotic targets could be optimally used in cancer therapy.
