Le cycle de séminaires des Frontiers in Biomedicine (anciennement "Frontiers in Biology"), initié par la Faculté de médecine en 2003 par les départements de la Section de médecine fondamentale, a pour but d’établir un pont entre médecine et biologie à travers une série de 8 à 10 conférences annuelles.
Des intervenants de renommée mondiale, actifs dans le domaine des sciences de la médecine, sont invités à présenter leur travail à un large public scientifique et médical. Les conférences sont données en anglais.


The Frontiers In Biomedicine (initially "Frontiers in Biology") lecture series was initiated in 2003 at Geneva University’s Faculty of Medicine. The series aims to bridge the gap between biology and medicine through a cycle of eight to ten seminars per year. World-class guest speakers from all domains of the basic medical sciences are invited to present broadly accessible lectures to a non-specialist scientific audience. In English.

«Targeting driver mutations in gliomas using immunotherapy - from bench to bedside and back»

With the successes of checkpoint inhibitors and engineered T cells cancer immunotherapy has made major progress in recent years. Personalization and tumoral heterogeneity have remained major challenges in the field. This presentations highlights the potential of targeting driver mutations in cancer to circumvent these challenges exemplified by preclinical and clinical studies targeting driver mutations in gliomas.

 

 «A pioneer in the field of brain tumor immunology, sailing between auto-immunity and tumor immunity, moving from neurology to neuro-oncology, always with the same high level of perception and lucidity.»
