Symposium: Taking Immunotherapies to the Next Level

Paris, France, Thursday November 7, 2019 - MAS PARIS

MAS PARISThis year our annual Paris symposium focuses on the continued development of immunotherapies.

While immuno-oncology strategies have revolutionised cancer treatment, enhancements still need to be made in understanding and expanding patient response. To enable this, preclinical models such as humanised mice need to be improved, as well as optimising the best strategies to utilise workhorse models e.g. syngeneics.

The symposium will bring together oncology and I/O R&D and preclinical teams from pharmaceutical and biotech companies to facilitate cross discipline discussions on current techniques, and how to move forward with future approaches

Discussion Topics Include:

  • How to apply organoids to immunotherapy development
  • Optimising syngeneic models for improved translational relevance
  • New challenges in combination therapy development
