Advancing Science - A Virtual Oncology Conference

New technologies are enabling discoveries that advance our understanding of how tumors develop, evade the immune system, and progress.  This virtual conference brings together research professionals, scientists, and clinicians from around the world to learn and discuss recent advances in cancer research with a focus on biomarker discovery, immuno-oncology and clinical applications across all cancer types.

Plenary Sessions:

  • Carl June, MD, Director of the Center for Cellular Immunotherapies at the Perleman School of Medicine and Director of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy at the University of Pennsylvania
  • Paolo Ascierto, MD, Director, IRCCS Instituto Nazionale Tumori Fondazione G Pascale

Scientific tracks:

  • Immuno-Oncology
  • Biomarker Discovery
  • Spatial Biology
  • Clinical Applications

This free online event allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open for twelve months from the date of the live event.
