The AACR Annual Meeting is the focal point of the cancer research community, where scientists, clinicians, other health care professionals, survivors, patients, and advocates gather to share the latest advances in cancer science and medicine. From population science and prevention; to cancer biology, translational, and clinical studies; to survivorship and advocacy; the AACR Annual Meeting highlights the work of the best minds in cancer research from institutions all over the world.
More information about the AACR Annual Meeting 2024 will be available online and in the Call for Abstracts in late August 2023.
"The thymus: from biology to medicine and back"
The NCI RNA Biology Initiative aims to facilitate the rapid exchange of information and expertise on the structure, function, biological roles, and therapeutic uses of RNA. Our goal is to foster synergistic interactions amongst NIH investigators and between NIH investigators and the larger scientific community. We anticipate that new insights into RNA biology and the development of innovative RNA-based tools and therapies will both define novel targets and accelerate the implementation of therapeutic interventions in cancer.
This one-day workshop will bring together leaders from industry, academia, and government with expertise in therapeutic oligonucleotides, delivery, small molecules, and preclinical development of novel RNA-based and RNA-targeted therapies.
With a comprehensive agenda encompassing four distinct yet related programs - Modulating the Tumour Microenvironment, Next Generation Cell-Based Immunotherapies, Bispecific and Multi-specific Antibody Therapeutics and Therapeutic Cancer Vaccines, the Summit promises to be a forum for the exchange of cutting-edge research, and a platform for collaboration among the global immuno-oncology community.
Highlights include a plenary keynote session featuring 2 distinguished speakers; engaging breakout discussions that bring peers together to chat about the most pressing or contentious topics; a balanced faculty of industry and academia speakers; posters showcasing innovative studies and an Exhibit Hall gathering the technology leaders in the IO space.
A two-day event packed with leading speakers, research and cutting-edge presentations on the latest advancements in the discovery & development of cancer immunotherapies with dedicated sessions on different therapeutic modalities, biomarkers, precision and omics-based approaches in IO as well as case studies on innovative preclinical and translational tools.
Welcome to Europe’s largest meeting focused on cancer immunotherapy research and development. Every year, the CIMT Annual Meeting connects the global cancer immunotherapy community in the heart of Europe. As the largest meeting focused on cancer immunotherapy research and development in Europe, CIMT invites international participants for high-level scientific exchange, collaboration, and education focused on cancer immunotherapy.
With rapid change in the field of cancer immunotherapy, Frontiers in Cancer Immunotherapy 2024 aims to shed light on promising novel therapies for patients with cancer. While the field has seen many successes over the last few years, challenges remain in understanding the basic biology of some tumor types and in identifying targets for developing novel therapies.
This symposium presents a remarkable opportunity to convene with other researchers, clinicians, and industry leaders to discuss the extraordinary progress and immense potential of new drug therapies and technologies in paving the way for a brighter future in cancer treatment.
The 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting Program will feature over 200 sessions complementing Dr. Lynn Schuchter’s Presidential theme: The Art and Science of Cancer Care: From Comfort to Cure.
Arthur, Sandra and Sarah Irving together with the Mass General Cancer Center are excited to announce the third annual “Arthur and Sandra Irving Cancer Immunology Symposium” to be held on June 24-27, 2024. The Symposium will bring together about 15 accomplished faculty mentors who are excited to share their discoveries and research career experience in cancer immunology with approximately 45 promising young scientists (post-docs and starting PIs).
Deadline: Friday, January 5, 2024
