8th Barossa Meeting

8th Barossa Meeting

Cell Signalling in Cancer Medicine

Novotel Barossa Valley, South Australia
14th – 17th November 2017


The organisers of the Barossa series of symposia would like to invite you to be part of the 8th Barossa Meeting to take place in the Barossa Valley from 14 – 17 November 2017 on the theme of ‘Cell Signalling in Cancer Medicine’. 

The Barossa Meetings have an established reputation for quality, bringing together some of the world’s best scientists across different disciplines in a convivial atmosphere conducive to open and energetic discussions. The 2017 meeting’s theme of ‘Cell Signalling in Cancer Medicine’ will continue this tradition by bringing into focus the major new paradigms arising from fundamental discoveries and their impact on therapeutic strategies. In addition to the numerous international delegates, the meeting will be attended by many of the key Australian researchers in cell signalling and cancer medicine.

As has become tradition, the 8th Barossa Meeting will be the occasion to award the Clifford Prize for Cancer Research to a scientist whose contribution has made a global difference in the fight against cancer.
