The meeting targets an audience of scientists and physicians interested in CSCs, developing research projects on the study of the biology, dissemination, plasticity and resistance of CSCs on solid tumors. About 100 participants coming from Montpellier, Bordeaux, Lyon, Limoges, Marseille, Nice, Paris and Toulouse gathered on November 18th and 19th 2015 in Marseille for the first edition of the meeting, supported by Cancéropole PACA and Cancéropole GSO.
