Emerging Approaches to Improving Adoptive Cell Therapy

The use of CAR (chimeric antigen receptor) cells as therapeutic agents in cancer is expanding at a rapid pace, but significant challenges remain.

This mini-symposium brings together investigators taking innovative approaches to address these challenges. The expert research presented here will span diverse aspects of CAR cell therapeutic development, from expanding our understanding of immune cell function to improving CAR T manufacturing to monitoring CAR cells in clinical research trials.

A moderated panel discussion will allow audience members to interact with the speakers for Q&A.


Sessions begin at 07:00 PT, 10:00 ET, 15:00 GMT, 16:00 CET. Please join us!
