Is Immunotherapy Living up to Its Promise? from thescientistllc on Vimeo

Immunotherapy has been hailed as a breakthrough for treating the untreatable, but it has not yet lived up to its promise to eradicate cancer and infectious disease. While there have been a number of exciting advances, there are still several real-world hurdles for immunotherapy to surmount before it becomes a standard option for most patients. The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to weigh in on the progress that immunotherapy has made, particularly in the search for effective anticancer treatments, and to discuss the steps still needed before immunotherapy becomes standard treatment in the clinic. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics that are related to their research.

Topics to be covered:

  • Where immunotherapies have succeeded, and where they have failed
  • Current progress in immunotherapy research, development, and deployment
