Summary of Meeting:
Advances in cancer immunotherapy are rapidly transforming the treatment landscape across cancers, but a critical challenge in the field is understanding how we can better drive T cells into tumors, and hence make them available for mounting productive anti-tumor responses. The fields of viral and cancer immunity share many parallels, and insights learned from each area can expand our collective knowledge of how to address this challenge. Cancer vaccines are a valuable immunotherapeutic modality, capable of expanding the repertoire of tumor-specific T cells and have the potential to be productively combined with complementary therapeutic approaches. This conference program was designed to highlight the exciting recent clinical and scientific advances, including the identification of novel antigen targets, new understanding of how the tumor microenvironment is immunoregulated and modulated by cancer immunotherapies, and the development of novel therapeutic approaches. Together, the collective shared knowledge gained from interdisciplinary interactions from this meeting promise to open the path for consideration of novel approaches for the design of more effective cancer immunotherapies.

Keystone Symposia is committed to maintaining a positive and respectful environment at its meetings. To this end, please review and comply with our policies.


Registered attendees of one meeting in a joint pair may participate in sessions of the other, pending space availability.


All those submitting an abstract should plan to attend in-person to ensure extensive interaction opportunities. At this time we recognize that a small percentage of submitters may be unable to travel due to border crossing restrictions and/or institutional travel bans. If these restrictions are still in place during the meeting, permissions for remote presentations will be given for the exceptional circumstances listed above.

NOTE: In the event that your abstract isn't selected for a short talk and you're not able to travel the abstract fee is nonrefundable. All paid abstracts will be included in the meeting app and meeting materials available online.


We appreciate the organizations that provide Keystone Symposia with additional support, such as marketing and advertising:
