HoSC is organised by PhD and MD students of the Research Training Group (RTG) 2099 Hallmarks of Skin Cancer, headed by Prof.Sergij Goerdt. The RTG profits from a lively exchange between its research centres in London, Mannheim and Heidelberg combining basic science and clinical education with the emphasis on the hallmarks of skin cancer.

Our aim is to improve the understanding of skin cancer biology by addressing the key questions regarding tumour initiation, progression and metastasis. Additionally, we focus on the questions surrounding the contribution of angiogenesis, immune response and stroma in tumourigenesis.

This conference will offer a platform for young scientists and students where they can meet outstanding experts in the field and establish contacts with fellow researchers from all over the world.

The conference will feature the following themes:

- Tumour Initiation and Stem Cells
- Oncogenic Signalling and Metastasis
- Tumour Microenvironment
- Tumour Immunology and Immunotherapy
- Cancer Genetics
