14th Annual Symposium
Physics of Cancer
Leipzig, Germany
Oct. 4 - 6, 2023

We like to cordially invite you to the upcoming
14th Annual Symposium "Physics of Cancer"
taking place from October 4 - 6, 2023 at Leipzig University, Germany.

Building upon the tradition of previous successful meetings, we like to bring together scientists from different disciplines and from across the world that are interested in physical aspects of cancer progression.

Cancer progression is a complex process involving multiple events that occur across various spatial and temporal scales. There are many great examples showing that physical principles can help to provide a better understanding some of these events. We strongly believe that to unravel the interactions between tumour cells and their niche and to ultimately guide new directions in cancer therapy and diagnostics requires an interdisciplinary approach.

With the Physics of Cancer (PoC) symposium we like to provide a casual setting for scientists across different disciplines to come together in a welcoming atmosphere for lively discussions, stimulation of new ideas, establishment of new collaborations, and also great opportunities for early career scientists. Major topics will be tissue mechanical alterations and diagnostic applications, cell mechanics and mechanosensing, tumor microenvironment interactions, and improved bioengineered models to study relevant aspects of cancer progression in vitro and in vivo.

We have selected a group of excellent speakers from biophysics, cell biology, bioengineering and biomedical backgrounds to embrace the interdisciplinarity of the theme. In addition, we will select several of the best submitted abstracts from early career researchers for oral presentations.
