Web of Life Conference

Major diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, obesity, ageing and neurodegeneration are often studied and treated in isolation. Yet, each of them may be related, causally or otherwise, to one another. Therefore, facilitating crosstalk among these different disciplines fosters multidisciplinary collaboration and helps devise innovative and effective approaches to target those diseases.

The two-day Web of Life Conference will be hosted for the first time by Stephenson Cancer Center in April 2024. To realize the full potential of team science, experts from disparate yet connected fields will be brought together to facilitate transdisciplinary dialogues under one common theme — “Web of Life: Connecting the Dots.” This collaboration will significantly impact and improve the way we engage communities, treat patients, foster collaboration and facilitate groundbreaking discoveries.
