Course Registration


This symposium is designed to bring together basic and clinical investigators and clinicians to discuss new achievements in immune-oncology and targeted therapy in solid and hematologic malignancies. Leading researchers will present new developments in drug discovery, treatment resistance and new questions that lie ahead for fundamental understanding of new information in cancer biology to get us closer to well-tailored cancer treatment.  

This symposium is designed for clinical and academic hematologists, oncologists, oncology nurses, basic scientists, clinical trail experts, including pharma and biostatisticians involved in clinical trial design, investigators and participants. 


Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Discuss new frontiers of research in immunotherapy, antibodies and personalized oncology in different solid and hematologic malignancies
  2. Discuss the scientific interplay between the immune system and tumor biology and translate this from “bench-to-bedside” for the benefit of our patients with a variety of solid and hematologic malignancies
  3. Discuss mechanisms of resistance in immune-oncology and formulate new strategies in basic, translational, and clinical sciences for more rational and efficient clinical investigations in solid and hematologic malignancies
  4. Demonstrate emerging imaging technologies that allow observation of tumor biology in vivo and eventual translation into clinic
  5. Introduce ongoing clinical trials to identify new drugs, improve tolerability of existing anti-tumor therapy, and advance the science of precision medicine for the benefit of patients with different solid and hematologic malignancies
