Building upon the success of 2018’s Interim Workshop on Cancer Immune Responsiveness (CIR), the goal of this year’s CIR workshop is the continued advancement of knowledge in the field about interactions between the immune system and cancer that contribute to immunotherapy response and resistance.Over this two-day workshop, participants will take part in both didactic sessions and working groups to identify and address key questions in the field concerning cancer immune responsiveness.Topics to be discussed include:
Attendee participation will greatly assist in defining and expanding upon pivotal questions concerning mechanisms of cancer immune responsiveness/resistance in order to advance improved therapeutic strategies and patient benefit with immunotherapy. It is anticipated that the efforts of numerous attendee-driven working groups will further momentum in the field by continuing discussions aimed at addressing the critical questions generated within this workshop well into the future.This second-year workshop will further the suggestions and recommendations derived from the 2018 workshop, help to educate the scientific community on the status and direction of immunotherapy research related to immune responsiveness, and will culminate in a manuscript to be submitted for publication in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer (JITC).
