Basic Aspects of Tumor Immunology II
Organizer(s): Nicholas P. Restifo and Nina Bhardwaj
Date: March 19 - 24, 2005
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Supported by The Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
The identification of a large number of tumor-associated antigens has opened up a world of possibilities for cancer immunologists. We have devised immunization strategies that enable us to boost immune responses against these antigens -- some encouraging but preliminary results have been obtained in the clinic. Most importantly, the adoptive transfer of tumor-specific T cells has emerged as an immunotherapeutic strategy that can cause solid tumors to reliably shrink. The challenge now is to gain a deeper understanding of how immune cells traffic to, interact with, and potentially destroy tumor cells. This meeting will bring together experts from academia and industry in an effort to elucidate the basic immunology that could make it possible to trigger and sustain an immune response capable of mediating the complete destruction of tumor cells.
