"10th Kloster Seeon 'Angiogenesis': Molecular Mechanisms and Functional Interactions"
Sept. 22-25, 2018 

This International Symposium is hosted by the
'Verein für Wissenschaftliche Fachtagungen in der Biomedizin e.V.' (VWFB)

The Priority Research Grant of the German Research Council (DFG) ”Angiogenesis” (SPP 1069) has inaugurated the International Kloster Seeon Meeting “Angiogenesis” series with meetings in the fall of 2000, 2002, 2004 and 2006. These meetings are  known for their scientific intensity and atmosphere of informal exchange in a unique setting of a monastery close to the Bavarian Alps.
Encouraged by the success of these Kloster Seeon meetings and feedback from the community, scientists from the new SPP1190 "The tumor - vessel interface" have taken the initiative to launch a new Kloster Seeon meeting series entitled “The tumor - vessel interface: Cellular and molecular mechanisms of tumor progression and metastasis”. Alternating with the angiogenesis meeting series, this meeting series will be hosted biannually from 2007 onwards (2007, 2009, 2011 etc.). The first meeting of this series has been held from September 22-25, 2007 - Aimed at bridging the fields of vascular biology and tumor biology to explore novel avenues in tumor progression and metastasis research, this meeting is not just intended to provide a discussion platform for the exchange of the latest findings in the field, but rather to stimulate an atmosphere that can breed new ideas and collaborations.
Having earned a strong reputation as the premier European Angiogenesis meeting´sereis will be continued with the next "Angiogenesis" meeting which will be held from Sept. 20-23, 2014. The Organizers have committed themselves to host a highest calibre meeting of utmost intensity in the spirit of the previous Seeon meetings. This includes coverage of the most recent and timely developments in the field of tumor progression and metastasis research.
