This AACR Virtual Special Conference on Tumor Immunology and Immunotherapy is designed to integrate multidisciplinary facets of basic cancer immunology and immunotherapy to broaden our understanding of ways to harness the immune system to treat cancer. The hallmark of this series is also to encourage the effective exchange of ideas between basic cancer immunologists, non-immunologists, and clinical oncologists in order to develop approaches that translate to outcomes. This year’s program will feature international leaders in the field, who will expand our knowledge of T-cell and non-T-cell therapies; novel combinations; innate and adaptive checkpoints; and defining novel immunotherapy targets. These world-renowned oncologists and researchers will offer their insights on vaccines, neoantigens, oncolytic viruses, synthetic biology and novel approaches to immune engineering, all in the pursuit of understanding tumor evolution and creating better treatments.
