Triumvira Immunologics to Present at CAR-T Congress EU in London, UK

Triumvira Immunologics, a privately held biopharmaceutical company developing a novel platform for engineering T cells to attack cancers, today announced that Dr. Paul Lammers, President & CEO, will both present and moderate a round table discussion at the CAR-T Congress EU, to be held in London UK on January 30-31. The invitations acknowledge Triumvira’s expertise in the novel engineering of T cells for the potential treatment of hematological malignancies and solid tumors.

The CAR-T Congress EU is a forum focused on discovering, translating, developing, and commercializing CAR-T into viable and accessible therapies. CAR-T cell therapies have shown transformational activity in hematological malignancies. However, despite the tremendous success so far, there are still hurdles to overcome before CAR-T can be effective in mainstream oncology beyond hematological malignancies. The European CAR-T Congress’ mission is to address the opportunities and challenges that presently face the CAR-T field and maximize the potential of this ground-breaking therapy. As Triumvira’s proprietary T cell Antigen Coupler (TAC) technology is biologically distinct from CAR-T and has the potential to be a next generation solution, Triumvira seeks to address some of the challenging areas for existing therapies in hematological malignancies and expand treatment activity to solid tumors.

Paul Lammers, MD, MSc, President and Chief Executive Officer will present and lead a round table discussion at CAR-T Congress EU as follows:

Date: Wednesday January 30, 2019

Time: 14:20 (GMT)

Venue: Millennium Gloucester Hotel, 4-18 Harrington Gardens, Kensington, London, SW7 4LH

Presentation: Triumvira’s TAC-T cell Technology: A Step Forward in Adoptive T Cell Therapy.

Date: Thursday January 31, 2019

Time: 10:30 (GMT)

Venue: Millennium Gloucester Hotel, 4-18 Harrington Gardens, Kensington, London, SW7 4LH

Moderating Round Table: Critical Challenges Facing CAR-T Therapy: Strengthening CAR-T for Solid Tumors.
