Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual

Immunomodulatory Therapeutic Antibodies for Cancer

Emerging Targets, Combinations, and Antibody Engineering for Next-Generation Immunotherapy

August 5-6, 2019



Despite the success of immunomodulatory antibodies in immuno-oncology, challenges remain in expanding the target space, engineering next-generation antibodies with improved efficacy and safety, and addressing innate and acquired resistance to immunotherapy. CHI’s Seventh Annual Immunomodulatory Therapeutic Antibodies for Cancer conference will explore next-generation immunotherapies, emerging targets and combinations, and strategies for overcoming resistance. It will provide case studies of antibody development in immuno-oncology from preclinical to clinical development.
