2023 Frontiers in Cancer Immunotherapy

The New York Academy of Sciences is proud to present our 10th annual multi-day scientific symposium on immuno-oncology.

Over the last 10 years, cancer immunotherapy has seen tremendous scientific development and clinical success. The field of immuno-oncology continues to advance at a rapid pace, with great potential to further revolutionize patient outcomes. Don’t miss this year’s event to be part of the leading forum for scientists and clinicians to keep up with the latest trends and developments in the field.

Together, We Will Explore

  • Emerging cancer immunotherapy research and its potential for clinical application
  • Challenges in understanding the basic biology of different tumor types
  • Innovations in therapeutics, including expanding the repertoire of treatments for patients whose cancers are resistant to current immunotherapies
  • Advances in AI, technology, and computational biology
  • Developments in delivering effective personalized therapies

Learning and Networking:

Every year, we convene a dynamic group of multi-sector scientists and clinicians working in basic, translational, and clinical immunotherapy – from across academia and industry. This symposium will offer ample opportunities for attendees to ask questions and expand their professional network. The magic of our events is in the conversations between attendees and speakers; and in the valuable exchange of high-quality research from all disciplines of immuno-oncology.

Featured Speakers:

  • Keynote presentations by world-renowned leaders in the field – Nobel Laureate Dr. James Allison (University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center), Dr. Nina Bhardwaj (Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai), and Dr. Robert D. Schreiber (Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis).
  • Speakers from top research universities including, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Stanford University
  • Speakers from leading biotech and life sciences companies including Enable Medicine, Gritstone Bio, Infinity Pharmaceuticals, and Lytix

Featured Topics on This Year’s Agenda:

  • The latest advances in CAR T-cell therapies
  • Tumor microenvironment and myeloid cells
  • Novel immunomodulators
  • Response and resistance mechanisms
  • Novel technologies for cancer immunotherapy
  • Cancer vaccines

Register today for three days of exciting conversation among top scientists and clinicians in the fast-advancing field of immuno-oncology.

Date: May 2, 2023 – May 4, 2023

Location: NYU Langone Health, Murphy Auditorium, 550 First Avenue New York, NY 10016
