Keystone

Conference title:  Keystone Symposium on Tumour Immunology – Multidisciplinary Science Driving Combination Therapy

Date: February 8-13, 2015

Location: Banff, Alberta, Canada

Details:

“The field of cancer immunotherapy is evolving rapidly as a result of key scientific and developmental principles that have been discovered in recent years. This new era has also revealed the complex network of signaling pathways within the tumor microenvironment that currently favors the procarcinogenic process, but new evidence also demonstrates that this process can be altered with agents that modulate these pathways resulting in antitumor immunity. Much is being learned about the interdependency of these pathways with each other and with the non-immune cellular components within the tumor microenvironment that include the tumor, epithelial and endothelial cells, and the stroma. Thus, optimizing outcomes for patients will likely come from successfully combining immunotherapies with each other and with other classes of therapies. This will require the integration of different scientific approaches from small molecule targeted therapies to complex biologics, as well as addressing molecular pathways in all of the cell subtypes within the tumor microenvironment. This conference will bring together experts from academia and industry, who have pioneered these areas of immunologic science, and will showcase the integration of this increasingly complicated knowledge being uncovered in this field of research into rapid translation into clinical applications.”
