Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 4th Annual

Personalized Cancer Vaccines

Advancing Personalized and Combination Immunotherapy

August 8-9, 2019



Recent developments in personalized cancer vaccines are enabling the next generation of rational cancer immunotherapy. Cancer vaccines may now be combined with other immunotherapies, dendritic cells used for personalized immunotherapy, and neoantigens on the surface of cancer cells targeted, matching vaccine components to each patient. mRNA- and DNA-based vaccines present an additional opportunity for cancer therapeutics. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fourth Annual Personalized Cancer Vaccines conference will cover applications in several types of cancer and progress in the understanding of the immune system that has significantly advanced the potential of cancer vaccines.
