The session will cover some of the latest insights into intrinsic tumour suppressive mechanisms with an emphasis on in vivo models that illustrate both the role and therapeutic potential of engaging intrinsic tumour suppression to limit cancer. Speakers will be encouraged to combine recently published data with unpublished material relevant to the roles of autophagy, senescence and cell death in limiting cancer. The session is intended for an audience that is broadly familiar with but not necessarily specialist in the subject area, in particular students and postdocs considering future research and career trajectories.
