The immune system can be programmed to recognize and destroy cancerous cells infected by viruses or affected by transforming genetic or epigenetic alterations. If properly activated, a specific immune attack can lead to a long-term remission or even cure. We are witnessing the renaissance of the concept of immune-mediated cancer therapy, and the need of predictive models for its preclinical assessment is at an all-time high.

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Tumor Models for Cancer Immunotherapy is designed to feature and discuss cutting-edge complex immunocompetent models for cancer immunotherapy research, as well as to present case studies of their successful applications.

Coverage will include but will not be limited to: 

  • Immune-mediated therapy for cancer and its preclinical assessment
  • Engineering immunocompetent models
  • Biomarkers in cancer immunotherapy and their preclinical identification
  • Researching inflammation and cancer inter-relation
  • Autochthonous tumor models for cancer immunotherapy
  • Syngeneic models for immunotherapy assessment
  • Exploring possible combination of targeted therapy and immunotherapy
  • Early safety testing in immune-oncology
  • Criteria for identifying responses to cancer immunotherapy
  • Modeling cancer in humanized mice
  • Metastatic models
  • Translational approaches in cancer immunotherapy development
