Dear Colleagues,

dear Members of the German Cancer Society,

Together with my co-chairs Lars Zender and Johannes Zuber I invite you to join us for the 21st International AEK Cancer Congress from February 16 to February 18 at the Kongress Palais in Kassel.

The AEK Cancer Congress hosts around 500 participants. It is funded by the German Cancer Society and the German Cancer Aid and will be held in 2023 under the theme “Towards New Cancer Therapies: Mechanisms and Molecules”. You will see that we have assembled a great line-up of outstanding speakers, who will cover multiple exciting topics of current biology, from basic mechanism to new immunotherapies and the development of new therapeutic molecules.

The meeting is intended to be a forum at which all participants can discuss their science and we encourage everybody to present their most exciting science. A major highlight of the meeting are the discussions at the posters and we will make a lot of time find appropriate formats to foster this. We will select a significant number of talks from the abstracts and provide students, postdocs and junior faculty the chance to present their latest research. In addition, the best posters will be presented as “Flash Talks”. So plan to present your best story at the AEK! We particularly encourage students and postdocs to attend the conference and offer special registration rates for them. In addition, there will be travel bursaries for young investigators.

After a long time overshadowed by the lack of person-to-person contacts I believe that the meeting will be an exciting venue to discuss science in person again. We are very much looking forward to welcome you at the 21st AEK Cancer Congress in 2023 in Kassel!

With very best wishes,

Martin Eilers
Congress Chair
