About AACR Special Conference on Tumor Immunology
The AACR Special Conference on Tumor Immunology and Immunotherapy is designed to integrate multidisciplinary facets of basic cancer immunology and immunotherapy to broaden our understanding of ways to harness the immune system to treat cancer. The hallmark of this series is also to encourage the effective exchange of ideas between basic cancer immunologists, nonimmunologists, and clinical oncologists in order to develop approaches that translate to outcomes. This year's program will feature international leaders in the field, who will expand our knowledge of the microbiome, adverse immunologic events, imaging and other new technologies, genetics and epigenomics of immuno-oncology, and immunologic signaling pathways. These world-renowned oncologists and researchers will offer their insights on novel cell therapies, biomarkers, vaccines, and adjuvants, all in the pursuit of understanding tumor evolution and creating better treatments.
