6th Congress of the French Angiogenesis Society
Collège de France, Paris
24-25 September 2015
in angiogenesis has been a focus of intense and exciting research activity over
the last several decades. As such, numerous clinical
experiences show that anti-angiogenic agents can delay tumor progression or
tackle the negative outcome of patients with different
forms of retinopathies.
However, novel mechanisms of disease progression as well as resistance have
been highlighted and new challenges remain, in particular, the understanding of
the intrinsic crosstalk between angiogenesis and the tumor microenvironment. Alternatively,
various cell-based and cell-free therapeutic strategies for stimulating
angiogenesis achieved encouraging results in animal experiments, often leading
to their rapid promotion to clinical testing. However, the benefits of such
treatments, if any, remain controversial and these therapies are still far from
widespread clinical application.
These unexpected challenges and controversies
might be attributable, at least in part, to our incomplete understanding of how
the vascular compartment develops and can regenerate, and of which intrinsic
factors account for the ultimate differences in angiogenic capacities between physiological
and pathological scenarios. The key to successful pro- or anti-angiogenic
strategies in the near future lies in our continuing efforts to explore these
core issues and to unravel the essential pathways and factors that govern the fate
of vascular cells.
In this 6th International Conference of the French Society of Angiogenesis
we are gathering leading scientists working on these aspects of angiogenesis
research to present and discuss recent advances and future avenues of
investigation. The conference will take
place from September 24 – 25, 2015,
at the prestigious Collège de France in the centre of Paris (France).
All participants are invited to present
a poster. A number of short communications will be selected from the submitted
look forward to an exciting meeting and welcoming you in Paris.
