Cancer & Evolution: Upcoming conference (on Zoom)

An old friend, Perry Marshall (author of the book Evolution 2.0) notified me of a major online conference he is organizing with Jim Shapiro, Frank Laukien and Henry Heng, looking at how better to understand and defeat cancer. The lineup of speakers is outstanding:

I plan to register, and thought others here might be interested.


Mostly excellent speaker lineup. Matthias Mann’s name misspelled in his bio.

Hey, how come I didn’t get an invite to present my work on this @pnelson? I think I’m the person that brought this to the DIs attention. :slight_smile:

Well it is @Perry_Marshall though, so not your fault.

A slightly cheaper alternative (if you’re not a grad student or postdoc) to registering for the conference might be to read Athena Aktipis’ new book The Cheating Cell: How Evolution Helps Us Understand and Treat Cancer. I saw it recommended on twitter, and am currently reading it. I’m not very far in yet, but I’ve enjoyed it so far.
