Description

The Imperial College Club of Germany e.V. is pleased to announce its next alumni conference in Milan, Italy over the weekend of 13 - 15 October 2017. Following our motto “Sustainability in the 21st Century”, our topic in 2017 will be “We are discovering new cancer therapies, so what are the future health threats?”.

We wish to spend the morning on the recent cancer therapies (e.g. harnessing the body’s own immune system to combat cancer), and in the afternoon we wish to understand the threats that are posed by the immunity of super bugs to today’s antibiotics.
