Up Close and Personal

May 21, 2014 | Alexandra Mulvey

During the months of May and June, we will offer five new Breakthroughs in Cancer Immunotherapy Webinars for Cancer Immunotherapy Month. Whether you want to hear the latest immunotherapies for melanoma, ovarian, or lung cancer, or you want to be in the know on combined cancer immunotherapies, our webinars have what you’re looking for. Each 45-minute, free online webinar will be hosted by an expert in cancer immunotherapy who will discuss current updates in immune-based cancer treatments and what is to come, followed by a Q&A session for audience members like you.

To see them all, go to, or register below for a select one. But seats are limited, so sign up and mark your calendars today!
