Immunotherapy is rapidly emerging as the core medical platform for the treatment of cancer. 

This is more than “just another conference”, with an outstanding program of national and international opinion leaders coming together with a common goal - to cure cancer. 

The conference title deliberately poses a provocative question and call to action.....

Where we are at and how close we are to the all-important “cures”?

What are the latest technologies and clinical advances in immunotherapies for cancer?

This conference will highlight the latest research on CAR-T cells, checkpoint blockades, NK cell, TIL/TCR targeting, cytokine modifying responses, therapeutic antibodies best practice for gene editing of T cells, as well as focus on current strategies to rejuvenate and reconstruct the immune system of cancer patients.

The most important session of the conference, "The Summit: Eradicate Cancer with Immunotherapy - If money was no object…. What is needed? How can we do it? How can we deliver to patients? Will we win?" will feature a panel discussion with key opinion leaders from research, clinic, biotech, regulatory and Government sectors.
