Anti-tumoral immunotherapy, from biology to the clinic

27-29 March, 2019, Champalimaud Foundation, Lisbon, Portugal

This fifth workshop will focus on anti-tumor Immunotherapy. It consists in treating cancer by stimulating the immune system to efficiently attack tumor cells. The aim of this course is a better understanding of how the immune system actors including dendritic cells, detect and fight tumor cells and how their activities can be boosted. Speakers will include internationally renowned scientists that will provide a general overview of the basic, translational, and clinical research in the field.

Registration is free and open to all the members of the DCBIOL LabEx community (Institut Curie, Paris and CIML, Marseille), to the IMOCA industrial chair members and to international scientists and MDs working in the field (subscription of young scientists and MDs will be privileged).
