Comment: The main goal of our symposium is to bring together basic science and clinical experts in the field of angiogenesis to facilitate the exchange of ideas and science involving basic biology and pathways of angiogenesis and new anti-angiogenic agents that can be used for specific targeting of tumor blood vessels and stroma. Moreover, the clinician scientists will present the results of ongoing clinical trials on anti-angiogenic therapy. This symposium will be a strong link in the establishment of a Mayo Clinic Angiogenesis Program. Furthermore, novel genetic as well as imaging methods to assess tumor vasculature for monitoring the effectiveness of angiogenic response in the pre-clinical and clinical trials will be discussed in this symposium. Overall, the symposium will assist in establishing strong collaborations among leading national, international, and Mayo Clinic experts in the field.
