We invite you to join us for an exciting webinar with Professor Flavia Biamonte from the University of Catanzaro, Italy.

In this webinar, Professor Biamonte will present recent findings from her groups research into the role of iron metabolism in cancer progression, and its modulation of the immune response, and how this may be translated into novel therapeutic approaches.

Iron is involved, in different ways, at various stages of tumor initiation and progression, and contributes to the growth and proliferation of cancer cells. Accumulating evidence has implicated alterations in iron metabolism, and the ensuing excess of iron, as crucial features for cancer development.
 
You will learn:

  • How intracellular iron increase can promote cancer progression and modulate the immune response
  • How Ferlixit can sensitize ovarian cancer cells to ferroptosis
  • How THUNDER Imaging technology is contributing to this cutting-edge research

A Q&A session will follow the presentation, so join us live on the day to put your questions to Professor Biamonte.
