The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) is pleased to host its third annual Cancer Immunotherapy Winter School, a comprehensive cancer immunotherapy education program, which will be held virtually on Feb. 22–24, 2021. Taught by leading experts in the field, this program provides a deep understanding of the core principles of tumor immunology and cancer immunotherapy as well as developing areas in the field including biomarker technology, validation and clinical integration; clinical trial design, data analysis and considerations for combination therapies.The program is tailored to early-to-mid career scientists and clinicians in the field of cancer immunotherapy working in academic, clinical, industry and government settings as well as those new to the field. The curriculum covers the fundamentals of cancer immunotherapy and features separate tracks, including clinical and research, allowing participants to tailor their experience by selecting the educational path most relevant to their learning goals.
To support young investigators and clinicians interested in attending the Cancer Immunotherapy Winter School, SITC accepted applications for travel awards, which will supplement costs for those honored to attend. Those honored with a 2021 Cancer Immunotherapy Winter School travel award include:Xue Bai, MD — Peking University Cancer HospitalAmy Cunningham–Bussel, MD, PhD — Brigham and Women's HospitalSapana Kadel, PhD — Dana-Farber Cancer InstituteBarbara Ma, MD — New York Presbyterian / Weill CornelFilippo Pederzoli, MD — IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele
New to the Cancer Immunotherapy Winter School for 2022 is the SITC Clinical Immuno-Oncology Network (SCION) Workshop.
Organized by Elizabeth Garrett-Mayer, PhD (Medical University of South Carolina), Michael Lotze, MD, FACS (University of Pittsburgh) and Yana Najjar, MD (University of Pittsburgh), this program will enable selected participants, determined through an application process, to develop their own immunotherapy clinical trial protocols with the help of experts in the field.
Through hands-on breakouts, participants will work in small groups, each group consisting of students paired with three dedicated faculty, including two clinicians/scientists and a statistician. These expert faculty are equipped to help participants navigate the unique considerations that accompany immunotherapy treatments, which will enable them to develop well-designed clinical trials that can effectively move the field forward.
This program is tailored to those working in the field of cancer immunotherapy, including, but not limited to clinical fellows, junior attendings, PhD scientists and Industry representatives.
At the conclusion of the SCION Workshop, participants should be able to:
Upon acceptance into the program, SCION Workshop applicants will be required to register for the Cancer Immunotherapy Winter School.
