Tumor Models for Cancer Immunotherapy Track Header

The immune system can be programmed to recognize and destroy cancerous cells infected by viruses or affected by transforming genetic or epigenetic alterations. If properly activated, a specific immune attack can lead to a long-term remission or even cure. We are witnessing the renaissance of the concept of immune-mediated cancer therapy, and the need of predictive models for its preclinical assessment is at an all-time high. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Tumor Models for Cancer Immunotherapy is designed to feature and discuss cutting-edge complex immunocompetent models for cancer immunotherapy research as well as to present case studies of their successful applications.

Who should attend: Preclinical and clinical scientist working in the area of immune-oncology.

Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Preclinical assessment of immune-mediated therapy
  • Engineering immunocompetent models
  • Biomarkers in cancer immunoherapy and their preclinical identification
  • Researching inflammation and cancer inter-relation
  • Autochthonous tumor models for cancer immunotherapy
  • Syngeneic models for immunotherapy assessment
  • Exploring possible combination of targeted therapy and immunotherapy
  • Early safety testing in immune-oncology
  • Criteria for identifying responses to cancer immunotherapy
  • Modeling cancer in humanized mice
  • Metastatic models
  • Translational approaches in cancer immunotherapy development

If you would like to submit a proposal to give a presentation at this meeting, please click here.

The deadline for submission is November 9, 2015.

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the highest quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference is given to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, regulators and those from academia. Additionally, vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
