“CHI’s 6th Annual IO Summit was a cutting-edge meeting, one of my favorites, as many collaboration connections were made out of this meeting. It is very well organized and a successful meeting.”

-Professor, Cancer Immunology, Northwestern University

“I found the conference excellent, with a good mix of academic and industry insight. Looking forward to your upcoming meetings.”

-Internal Medicine, Arizona Biodesign Institute

“CHI’s IO Summit 2018 was the best one yet. It had great speakers and it really stimulated good discussion. I think it incorporated all of the main topics and thought regarding Immunotherapy.”

-Director, Biomarker Laboratory, Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center

“I was impressed by the breadth and quality of the presentations. There was an excellent balance of presentations between preclinical R&D, translational medicine and clinical trials.”

"The smaller, more intimate – but well focused – partnering forum was much more effective for us than most of the larger conferences with thousands in attendance."

CEO, Siva Therapeutics, Inc.

This was a great experience, and I enjoyed being able to share my work as well as learn about all the new advances in immunotherapy. I highly enjoyed the conference, there were great panels full of amazing speakers. I definitely learned a lot!
