Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 2nd Annual

Emerging Immuno-Oncology Targets

Novel Targets and Pathways for Cancer Immunotherapy and Combinations

August 30-31, 2018

While cancer immunotherapy has made a giant leap in the past five years, the majority of therapies at advanced stages of development are clustered in a similar target space. The increased investment in immuno-oncology has created an urgent opportunity to discover and populate new target spaces that either present new classes of immunotherapies or can be used in combination with existing products. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Second Annual Immuno-Oncology Targets conference will cover the emerging target space, including immunomodulatory inhibitor and agonist targets, stromal and immune cell targets, and strategies for rational combination immunotherapy. Case studies of preclinical and translational approaches to the discovery and validation of new immuno-oncology targets and combinations will be presented.

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:

  • Emerging immunomodulatory targets
  • Checkpoint inhibitors (PD-1/PD-L1, CTLA-4, TIM3, LAG3)
  • Targeting agonist receptors (OX40, 4-1BB, GITR, CD27, ICOS, GITR)
  • Targeting tumor-associated macrophages (TAM), myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSC) and regulatory T cells (Tregs)
  • Targeting the STING pathway
  • Targeting CD96 and TIGIT for cancer immunotherapy
  • Targeting the stroma, tumor microenvironment
  • Targeting innate immunity
  • Rational combination immunotherapy

The deadline for priority consideration is February 9, 2018.

All proposals are subject to review by session chairmen and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
