This week I’ve been attending the excellent AACR Special Conference on Tumour Immunology and Immunotherapy here in Miami Beach. I must say that it’s really rather nice to have a local event literally less than 20 blocks away for once – it sure beats all the stress and hassle of long distance travel!
The meeting is designed to “integrate multidisciplinary facets of basic cancer immunology and immunotherapy to broaden the understanding of ways to harness the immune system to treat cancer.”
In this latest conference report, we cover some key highlights and insights learned, as well as review some early clinical data that was presented on several fronts including new companies and novel approaches to CAR-T cell therapy, as well as an important update on STING agonism.
We also identify some emerging trends that may teach us more about the future landscape developments in immuno-oncology.
