Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 5th Annual

Emerging Targets for Immunomodulatory Antibodies

Novel Targets and Pathways for Cancer Immunotherapy and Combinations

October 5-6, 2021


While cancer immunotherapy has made great strides in recent years, the majority of therapies and combinations being evaluated in the clinic are clustered in a similar target space.  Remaining unmet medical needs, low responding populations and safety considerations are driving researchers to discover and populate new target spaces offer new immunotherapy classes with the potential for combination with existing products. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 5th Annual Emerging Targets for Immunomodulatory Antibodies conference will examine the needs and opportunities in the IO target space, share results of newly discovered targets and pathways and consider lessons learned from clinical studies of novel immuno-oncology agents and combinations. 


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Agonistic antibody targets
  • Cytokine agonism, activation, engineering
  • Emerging checkpoint inhibitors
  • Genomic and proteomic screening for discovery of novel targets
  • Glycoprotein targets
  • Identifying co-stimulatory molecules for bispecifics
  • Lessons learned from clinical studies of novel agent combinations with checkpoint inhibitors
  • Lessons learned from targeting intertumoral agents
  • Target validation strategies
  • Targeting innate immunity
  • Targets requiring conditional activation
  • Where are opportunities and needs for new IO targets?
