Cellular Immunotherapies for Solid Tumors Digital Summit

The cell therapy revolution has changed the face of cancer treatments providing potentially curative therapy for patients which had few options left. However, there is still more to do in the field.

Currently, 90% of all cancers arise from solid tumors, yet extremely little efficacy has been shown with cellular immunotherapies, despite their curative success in liquid tumors. Therefore, the time has come to invest in uncovering the nuances of solid tumor biology, to improve understanding of the tumor microenvironment and combat cell therapies with arming and combination approaches to tackle this huge unmet need.

Join the first digital forum to host industry and academic experts including Immatics, GSK, and the University of Pennsylvania who are pioneering research in the solid tumor space. Divulge strategies to improve tumor access, enhance cell persistence, identify safe targets, and overcome the immunosuppressive nature of the tumor microenvironment in preclinical and clinical settings.

This unique, virtual forum will provide you with exclusive learning and networking opportunities with senior decision makers, equipping you with a deeper understanding of the discovery, preclinical and clinical landscape of cellular immunotherapies for solid tumors.

Your top 5 reasons to attend:
* Improve access to the tumor site, supporting T cell penetration and infiltration with Myeloid Therapeutics
* Analyze different aspects of the immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment including metabolism, spatial interactions of immune cells, tumor-associated macrophages and more with talks from University of Pennsylvania & TCR2
* Explore innovative targeting strategies to improve safety with Neon Therapeutics & Immatics
* Review strategies to achieve reliable and translatable preclinical predictions of gamma-delta and NK cell therapies with Incysus Therapeutics & Baylor College of Medicine
* Learn from clinical experience reviewing T cell fitness and biomarker analysis with GlaxoSmithKline & Tmunity Therapeutics
