14th International Symposium on Minimal Residual Cancer 2025

Your Host: IHU RespirERA 
(Respiratory Health, EnviRonment and Ageing)


The IHU RespirERA (Respiratory Health, EnviRonment and Ageing) is a collective project structuring the Nice Sophia Antipolis medical-scientific community around a single pathology centred on respiratory diseases.

Spearheaded by Prof. Paul Hofman, Head of the Clinical and Molecular Pathology Department and Director of an Inserm Unitworking onlung cancer, in particular biological screening, it is supported by 4 founding members: Nice University Hospital, the Université Côte d’Azur, INRIA and INSERM.

This project was born out of a reflection on Nice’s ecosystem and its people. The population of Nice is made up of elderly people (over a third of whom are aged over 65).

This population naturally includes patients with cancerous and non-cancerous respiratory diseases. It is also a particular environmental ecosystem, with air pollution that can be very marked during the summer months, and particularly associated with worrying global warming.


Your Co-Host: European Liquid Biopsy Society

The European Liquid Biopsy Society

With the start of 2020, the European Liquid Biopsy Society (ELBS) was established by the initiative of Prof. Klaus Pantel, physician and tumor biologist at the University hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE). Academic partner institutions and partners from industry (SME as well as large diagnostic and pharma companies) want to jointly promote research around liquid biopsy and its use in clinical practice. ELBS is open to attract new partners and will be a hub for liquid biopsy research in Europe with the key goal to translate liquid biopsy assays into clinical practice for the benefit of patients.
