Rising Stars of Cancer Metabolism and Signaling

The field of cancer metabolism has come a long way from its origins in Otto Warburg’s hypothesis of the 1920’s. Over the last few decades researchers have uncovered complex metabolite-signaling networks in cancer, which support tumor progression by inducing cell growth, influencing stress responses, restructuring the tumor microenvironment, aiding immune evasion, and promoting metastasis. Many of these oncogenic metabolic changes are unique to tumors, and therefore provide promising therapeutic targets. This symposium, which will take place almost 100 years after the Warburg hypothesis was born, will gather a group of competitively-selected early career researchers to preview the next era of discovery in cancer metabolism.
