Cancer Immunotherapy: Decoding the Cancer Immunity Interactome
Scientific Organizers: Charles Drake, Ira Mellman and Andrea Schietinger
Date: March 14 - 18, 2021
Location: Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, BC, Canada
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Although there has been rapid advancement in the understanding of cancer immunity; application of this evolving body of knowledge is impeded by divisions between disciplines and the challenges inherent in remaining abreast of a rapidly developing field. Widening knowledge gaps span the interface between clinical and basic data, between scientists focused on disparate immune components of the tumor microenvironment and between systems biology / bioinformatics data and their practical application. In bringing together translational physicians, basic immunologists and cutting-edge systems immunobiology, this conference has the following specific aims: 1) To foster cooperation between systems biologists, basic and translational scientists such that cutting-edge discoveries made in the bioinformatics field drive translation and lab-based investigation 2) To provide a showcase for novel imaging and profiling technologies fostering their widespread adoption by the cancer immunity field as a whole. 3) To bring together scientists focused on disparate aspects of the TME (myeloid cells, dendritic cells, T cells) with the goal of enabling attendees to envision a multi-dimensional model of cancer immunity. The expected outcome of the conference is for attendees to glean a more fulsome portrait of the field, and to accelerate the application of new technologies and systems biology approaches to their own research efforts. A well-organized cancer immunity conference focused on bringing together translational and basic investigation along with cutting edge systems biology and technology approaches represents a novel construct previously fulfilled by a series of isolated silo-like meetings. The disciplines gathered for this conference would not normally co-attend meetings, with the agenda aimed at filling the widening knowledge gaps promulgated by a rapidly evolving field.
Registration opens in January 2020
