The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) and the World Immunotherapy Council (WIC) are dedicated to advancing cancer immunotherapy and, likewise, the future leaders of the field. This program will provide the opportunity for young scientists and future leaders from throughout the world to interact, fulfilling the World Immunotherapy Council’s mission to facilitate rapid development and global dissemination of cancer immunotherapies through scientific exchange.
The young investigators, each chosen for exemplary work in the field of cancer immunotherapy, will contribute insight and perspectives into present and future issues, challenges, and improvements as cancer immunotherapy is integrated into mainstream cancer treatment. This program and its participants will ultimately highlight worldwide initiatives in cancer immunotherapy and facilitate scientific exchange and networking between today’s and tomorrow’s leaders. Additionally, this forum will provide a unique opportunity to showcase the world’s young, talented scientists and provide an opportunity for knowledge exchange and networking for these selected representatives.
