In the field of immuno-oncology, adoptive cell therapy is widely recognized for its promise to elicit effective long-term anti-cancer immunity.  Cancer immunotherapy harnesses the power of the immune system by adoptively transferring tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes or modified peripheral blood immune cells into cancer patients to mediate long lasting anti-tumor responses.

During this summit, leading scientists in the field of cancer immunotherapy will present their research and perspectives on:

  • Mechanisms underlying T cell signaling and efficacy
  • Characterization of cellular phenotype and function prior to T cell expansion
  • Factors influencing T cell performance when treating aggressive and challenging cancers
