New Directions in Cancer Immunotherapy
About the Event
Following the success of the 2016 conference in London, we present the Immuno-Oncology Summit Europe 2017. Once again our venue is in central London, an ideal meeting place for international academic and industry experts.
Attendees can now experience an entire week of updates and discussion. In Novel Approaches for Cancer we will focus on T cells and their receptors including chimeric antigen receptor (CAR-T) technology, bispecifics, preclinical models, and targets and lead selection. Immunomodulatory Approaches will look at advances in checkpoint inhibitors, agonistic receptor engagement, NK, macrophage and dendritic cell activation, Fc-engineering technologies, cytokine-based therapies and oncolytic vaccines. Combination Immunotherapy will examine design of immunotherapy combinations, combination strategies and provide preclinical and clinical updates.
