( 次世代癌症免疫疗法的开发 )

New Protein Engineering Science and Technology to Support the Development of Novel Immunotherapeutics and Treatment Combinations

2018年1月8日 - 9日


A succession of strong clinical successes with antibodies against checkpoint targets has spawned a surge of interest from across the industry in the development of antibody immunotherapeutics and treatment combinations. The major challenges facing those now entering the field include establishing clinical proof of concept, product and target differentiation, selection of patient responders and the rational design of effective immunotherapy combinations. Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Fourth Annual Engineering Next-Generation Cancer Immunotherapies offers presentations of protein engineering strategies to improve the efficacy of immunotherapeutics and drive the progress of more personalized treatments in this space.
