Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 6th Annual

Preclinical and Translational Immuno-Oncology

Predictive Preclinical Models and Translational Strategies for Cancer Immunotherapy

October 5-6, 2021


The recent advancements in immunotherapies, such as immune checkpoint modulators, bispecific antibodies, and adoptive T cell transfer, are shifting the way cancer patients are treated. Rapid development of novel immuno-oncology programs is creating the need for predictive preclinical models and translational strategies to understand combination immunotherapy, study responses and resistance to cancer immunotherapy, and identify novel biomarkers and targets. Please join Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 6th Annual Preclinical and Translational Immuno-Oncology meeting and learn about new clinically relevant models for screening IO therapies and translational strategies to support clinical IO programs.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Engineering novel immunocompetent mouse models
  • Preclinical assessment of CAR T cell therapies
  • Preclinical testing of immune checkpoint modulators in humanized mouse models
  • Preclinical characterization of combination immunotherapy in syngeneic mouse tumor models
  • Complex 3-D cellular models of tumor microenvironment for in vitro functional analysis
  • Mechanism of resistance to immunotherapy and therapeutic strategies for non-responders
