Third Forecast Workshop

Hallmarks in cancer and the development of diagnostic tools
Hotel Vila Galé, Braga, Portugal
14 | 16 June 2021

The majority of the in vitro models only involve a single tumour cell population, which represents a small fraction of the tumour development and integrative cell network. Therefore, a new dimension in cancer research has to be developed: the 3D microenvironment. Thus, the FoReCaST project intend to create in vitro 3D cancer study models, which will copycat the complexity and hierarchically organization of natural ECM of tumour cells found in vivo. In this context, 3B’s-UMINHO will strategically use the knowledge gained during the last ~20years in the fields of biomaterials sciences and tissue engineering, and five new complementary research topics are being implemented to consolidate this new research topic within the following topics (Fig.1):

  • RL1 - Metabolic glycoengineering for tumour imaging;
  • RL2 - Bioinformatics;
  • RL3 - Cell engineering;
  • RL4 -  Nanotechnologies
  • RL5 - Cell signalling
