SITC's 30th Anniversary Annual Meeting provided a multidisciplinary educational and interactive environment focused on improving the outcome for current and future patients with cancer by incorporating strategies based on basic and applied cancer immunotherapy.
The meeting consisted of cutting-edge research presentations by experts in the field, both oral and poster abstract presentations and ample opportunity for structured and informal discussions, including important networking opportunities. In addition, the meeting included updates on major national and international initiatives coming from academia, government and industry, as well as important Society projects.
Additional information on the Annual Meeting session topics can be found here.
The target audience for this program included basic and clinical investigators from academic institutions, industry and regulatory agencies, including clinicians, basic and translational researchers, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and allied health professionals involved in cancer research as well as pharmacists and payers, that wished to learn more about cancer immunology and immunotherapy, and its incorporation into current (and future) effective cancer treatment.
Upon completion of this meeting, participants are now able to:
- Summarize and integrate the most recent advances in tumor immunology and cancer immunotherapy into basic, clinical and translational research
- Analyze cutting-edge clinical trials to incorporate new research and techniques into clinical applications for cancer immunotherapy
- Describe immune regulatory pathways that restrict and enhance immunity to tumor antigens, and identify respective targets for therapeutic interventions
- Initiate and form collaborations among the various members of academia, industry, government and clinical practices to promote clinical evaluation of these advances in more efficient trials
