Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural

Clinical Cancer Immunotherapy

Translating Cancer Therapy from Promise to Reality

February 19-20, 2015 | The InterContinental San Francisco | San Francisco, CA


There is a great need for more effective and less toxic therapies for metastatic cancer patients. Advances in genetically engineered T cells is demonstrating clinical efficacy, eliminating many side effects from traditional chemo and radiation therapies. Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Inaugural Cancer Immunotherapy symposium will demonstrate bench to bedside translation of combination immunotherapies, adoptive T cell therapies, as well as molecular targeted therapies. Case studies using prognostic biomarkers to predict immunotherapy response will also be showcased. The human immune system is inherently capable of recognizing and destroying cancer cells. At this event, attendees will learn more about the translational advances are converting the promise of immunotherapy into reality for cancer treatment.

Who should attend: VPs, Directors, Managers, CEOs, CSOs, Professors and Scientists from Large Pharma, Biotechs and Academia working in fields such as T Cell Engineering, Gene and Cell Therapy, Cellular Biology, Immunology, Immunotherapy, Oncology, and Pathology.

Topics will include, but are not limited to: 

  • Predictive/prognostic biomarkers for immunotherapy
    o Serum proteins
    o Circulating DNA
    o Receptor expression
    o Cellular infiltrates
    o Humoral & cellular immune responses
    o Immune system polymorphisms
  • Advances in cancer biology with relevance to anti-tumor immunity
  • Combination immunotherapies
  • Molecularly targeted therapies
  • Adoptive T cell therapy and transfer
  • Dendritic cells
  • Innate/adaptive immune interplay
  • Immune cell trafficking to the tumor microenvironment
  • Immune modulation
  • Checkpoint blockade
