Cancer is a multifactorial disease, with causes ranging from molecular events to the life style, and subtle interactions among those. It originates from the very intimacy of multicellular living systems, and requires a multidisciplinary effort to be understood and, ultimately, defeated. 

The aim of our conference will be to gather biologists, philosophers of science, mathematicians, systems biologists, sociologists, medical doctors to name but a few, to foster a broad interdisciplinary conversation about the multifaceted nature of Cancer.


This conference is a joint effort between

BioSyL the systems biology federation of Lyon

PLASCAN, the François Rabelais Institute for Multidisciplinary Cancer Research


It is co-organized by
