Immunotherapy Bridge

The third annual Immunotherapy Bridge, which precedes Melanoma Bridge, is a scientific program focused on the application of immunotherapy, not only for melanoma, but also for cancer in general. The program will last two days this year, to reflect the increasing importance of immunotherapy in clinical practice. 

Attendees are expected from all around the world and are encouraged to submit their abstracts for poster or oral presentations during the event. All accepted abstracts will be included in a scientific journal. The speaker of the abstracts selected for oral communication will be exempt from the registration fee and will be invited as speakers to Naples.
