ILCA offers a full range of online educational programmes delivered by scientific and medical experts from around the world exchanging the latest scientific advances and best practices in liver cancer research and care.

Upcoming Webinars
ILCA Webinar Series
16 June 2022 | Tumor heterogeneity in HCC analyzed by single cell analysis
08:30 – 09:30 EST | 14:30 – 15:30 CET | 19:00 – 20:00 IST

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a molecularly heterogenous disease influenced by a complex etiological factors. As tumor cells are the smallest structural and functional unit of a tumor lesion, understanding tumor biology can be better achieved by single cell analysis. Three experts in the liver cancer and single cell analysis field will discuss latest research findings and share their perspectives on the methodologies and scientific approaches to address questions related to improving biological understanding and therapeutic intervention of HCC.

Join the webinar if you want to learn more about:

  • HCC and iCCA and they varying degree of molecular diversity
  • How tumor molecular diversity and tumor functional clonality are linked to patient outcomes
  • How tumor-derived VEGF may drive microenvironmental reprogramming
  • More about CD8 T cells in mice and human CD8 T cells
  • Immune cell interaction with hepatocytes
  • Autoagressive CD8 T cells and their tumor surveillance function
