The ESGCP meetings aim to allow European Scientists and clinicians to present and discuss data in the field of cell proliferation. Understanding the control of cell proliferation (and how this control is frequently lost) is necessary for the early diagnosis and improved (novel) treatments for various diseases, including cancers. Similarly, regulation of cell loss via apoptosis is also crucial. This meeting will address these issues at the molecular level (e.g. signal transduction) as well as in the whole body (dietary manipulation) and combinations of the two (such as in gene therapy, or the studying the effects of ageing on the fidelity of cell replication).

Many aspects of the "Cell Factory" key action are therefore addressed along with certain aspects of Food, Nutrition and Health and The Ageing Population. Each session of the meeting will therefore have recognised expert keynote speakers and will be accompanied by shorter presentations by delegates - particularly younger (student/postdoctoral) delegates. There will also be a number of poster presentations.
