GTC is proud to present the 5th Immunotherapeutics & Immunomonitoring Conference to be held on Jan 31 ~ Feb 1, 2013 inSan Diego, CA.
The immune system plays a central role not only in fighting infections, but also in many other diseases and medical conditions including cancer. The study of the immune system has lead to significant findings in many fields of medicine and biology and has resulted in the discovery of novel and unique substances and reagents that are now widely used for diagnosis, evaluation and therapy of different malignant diseases. The development of prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines, as well as innovative combinatorial immunotherapeutic approaches has substantially decreased mortality and morbidity and improved the life, life expectancy, and the well being of the millions of patients.
Network with clinical immunologists, pathologists, and pharmacologists, as well as practicing clinicians and R&D scientists, to discuss the newest development in the field. Leading experts from the scientific and clinical arenas and industry will present about novel findings and developments in the constantly changing area of immunological assays and procedures. They will also discuss recent advances in immunotherapy, as they relate to various immunotherapy modalities, specific cancers, cell subsets, animal models, and tumor microenvironment. Potential clinical feasibility and commercial potential of the newest data obtained from leading biomedical research laboratories will also be discussed.
Sessions for 2013 Agenda:
-Disease & Tumor Microenvironment
-Novel Targets in Immune Therapeutics
-Novel Therapeutic Approaches: Antibodies, Vaccines, Cellular Therapy
This conference is also part of the 2nd Novel Immunotherapeutics Summit, which consists of three other concurrent tracks:
11th Cytokines & Inflammation
2nd Allergy Drug Discovery and Development
Immunotoxicity & Immunogenicity
Over 200 leading industrial and academic experts will present at this two-day summit. The 2nd Novel Immunotherapeutics Summit will offer an in-depth examination of the challenges involved in the dynamic and ever-changing field of drug discovery and development.
