Attend the 2020 Interrogating the Tumor-Specific Surfaceome for Immune Targeting Workshop
SITC invites you to attend the workshop, Interrogating the Tumor-Specific Surfaceome for Immune Targeting. Scheduled for April 23–24, 2020, at the Hotel Republic in San Diego, this SITC workshop (click here to register now) will focus on the tumor cell surfaceome and the many opportunities that accompany it for the development of future immunotherapies and maximization of existing techniques. By bringing together experts on the topic from a variety of fields including medical oncology, bioinformatics, cancer biology, genetics/epigenetics, immunology, and many others, the workshop will facilitate increased discussion in this important area.
- Samir M. Hanash, MD, PhD – The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
- Avery D. Posey Jr., PhD – University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
Concepts ranging from the basic biology of cancer cell surface molecules to applications of drugs and cellular therapies targeting novel surface markers will be discussed, with the goal of defining the future direction of the field. It is anticipated that the efforts of this workshop will fuel innovative collaborations, disseminate important knowledge to the rest of the immunotherapy field, and help assure the continued growth of immunotherapy treatments as a whole.
