This is an exclusive opportunity to report on emerging drugs and concepts in the cancer immunotherapy field, as well as cover ground-breaking principles in the clinical application and management of cancer immunotherapy. Physician thought leaders from 34 countries around the world are presenting and will be available for onsite interviews.
Credentialed members of the media can register free of charge for a press pass to SITC 2014, which will grant access to educational programs including:
- Workshop on Combination Immunotherapy: Where Do We Go From Here? – November 6 Combination immunotherapy is at the forefront of the field. Hear the current challenges to implementation of combination immune-based therapies across multiple cancer indications. Experts will also present potential solutions to improve the rational application of immunotherapy.
- Primer on Tumor Immunology and Cancer Immunotherapy™ - November 6
The understanding of tumor immunobiology has increased dramatically in recent years, leading to the successful development of novel immune-based treatment options to improve cancer outcomes. Hear core immunology principles as they relate to basic and clinical research in immunotherapy of cancer.
- SITC 29th Annual Meeting – November 7-9
Hear Keynotes on cancer as a disease of the metaorganism and prophylactic cancer vaccines, gain access to posters presenting the latest research in the field, hear updates on important cancer immunotherapy initiatives from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and National Cancer Institute, and more.
