The Persistence of (T Cell) Memory: Towards Cellular Therapy for Solid Tumors

In this webinar, Douglas Green will describe how early events in T cell activation influence anti-tumor immunity. 

This webinar will be hosted live and available on-demand

Cell therapies, particularly engineered T cells, are effective treatments for blood cancers, but have limited efficacy in solid tumors because of the immunosuppressive features of the tumor microenvironment. Researchers are applying insights about the mechanisms of molecular and chromatin remodeling before and during T cell activation and fate determination to improve immunotherapies.

In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, Douglas Green will discuss how scientists leverage discoveries in T cell biology to develop effective CAR T cell therapies for solid tumors.

Topics to be covered 

  • Molecular mechanisms promoting memory T cell fate
  • Strategies to improve cancer immunotherapies
