Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual

CAR Ts, TCRs and TILs

Engineering Clinically Relevant Adoptive T Cell Therapies

May 6-7, 2020

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual CAR Ts, TCRs and TILs focuses on the latest tools, techniques, and engineering strategies driving the development of cellular immunotherapies for cancer and immune disorders. Focus will be given to clinical progress with Chimeric Antigen Receptors (CAR), T Cell Receptors (TCR), Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (TIL) and Natural Killer (NK) cells, with dedicated sessions on off-the-shelf platforms, solid tumors and lessons learnt from the clinic.
