Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual

Adoptive Cell Therapy

Engineering the Second Generation of CAR Ts, TCRs, and TILs

August 11-12, 2020



Efforts to engineer CAR Ts, NKs, TCRs, and TILs with greater precision, safety profiles, and efficacy are leading to the second generation of improved adoptive cell therapies. With multiple engineered receptors already making preclinical impact, many biotech and pharma companies are preparing for the next wave of clinical trials. The end goal is still the same: improved patient outcomes. However, there remain technical considerations and translational challenges relating to cell therapy development, manufacturing practicability, clinical trial approaches, cell quality and persistence, and patient management. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Seventh Annual Adoptive Cell Therapy conference focuses on the next steps needed to deliver CAR Ts, TCRs, and TILs into the clinic.

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:

  • Progress in:
    • Chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) including gene edited CAR Ts
    • Tandem CARs
    • T Cell receptors (TCRs)
    • Tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs)
    • Cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs)
    • Next-generation CAR Ts
    • NK cells
    • T Regs

 

  • Impact of:
    • Genome editing (CRISPR/Cas 9, TAL)
    • Gating strategies
    • Antigen presentation
    • New approaches to activation and engagement
    • Kill switches

 

  • Potential of:
    • Off-the-shelf therapies
    • Targeting solid tumors
    • Manipulating the tumor microenvironment
    • Combination therapies
    • New antigens

 

  • Solutions for:
    • Translation
    • Scale-up
    • Manufacturing
