EMBO/Leopoldina Workshop

The impact of bacterial infections on human cancer

26-29 October 2019 in Harnack House, Berlin

The causality between tumour viruses and human cancers is firmly established, due to the presence of transforming viral genes in the resulting cancers. Although there is much evidence that certain bacterial infections, in particular chronic ones, can also lead to the development of cancer, it has been much more difficult to provide conclusive proof. Thomas Meyer together with Thomas Rudel and Jacques Neefjes organized this comprehensive meeting to bring together international experts in a number of related fields to focus on how this causality can be established.
