Immuno-Oncology: Exploring Advances in Developing Cancer Immunotherapies (Europe)

About this event

There are huge expectations for cancer immunotherapies and their potential to manipulate the patient’s own immune system in order to fight tumour cells and treat the disease. Whilst much progress has been made in this area, there have also been set-backs and the price, hope and hype associated with cancer immunotherapy places a lot of pressure on clinicians. This session will explore new approaches for  optimising response and minimising resistance to cancer immunotherapies. 

  • Assessing the type of cancer to which immunotherapy will be most beneficial and implementing it in a personalised approach:
  • developing different therapies for different patients and cancers
  • determining likely time-scales for regulatory guidance for actively personalised immunotherapies
  • Exploring the evolution and development of CAR-T cells for effective immunotherapy and precision oncology: 
  • identifying novel targets for CAR-T cells
  • increasing their effectiveness for solid tumours
  • Examining the potential of neoantigens for cancer immunotherapy
