About the International Conference on Cancer-Induced Bone Disease

    The International Meeting on Cancer-Induced Bone Disease is among the most exciting international occasions for the exchange of the latest scientific discoveries. They are designed to allow attendees to enhance their knowledge of diseases of the skeleton, basic bone biology, mineral metabolism, and their correlation to oncology.

    Discussions on the latest advances in innovative treatments and cutting-edge practices await you at the 2013 event. The conference takes place 6-9 November in Miami, Florida. The world’s leading scientists and researchers will be on-hand to share their expertise in bone metastases and bone and cancer cell biology.

    Learning Objectives
    • The importance of both the physical and cellular bone microenvironment and the hematopoietic stem cell niche in supporting the growth of metastatic cancer cells
    • The role of cancer stem cells and hematopoietic stem cells in the metastatic process
    • The current state of the field of genomics and proteomics as applied to bone metastasis
    • The efficacy of new therapeutic agents and imaging techniques for bone cancers and bone metastasis
    • The consequences of tumor cells on the skeleton
    • Understanding of the mechanisms of therapy resistance

    IBMS and CABS meetings are premier international scientific events that provide an international forum to present and discuss current basic and clinical science in the rapidly advancing field of skeletal complications of cancer.
