CIMT Cancer Cell Therapy Summit

Hosted by the Champalimaud Foundation

September 18-19, 2024

Lisbon, Portugal

CIMT Cancer Cell Therapy Summit

Meeting Description

This meeting collaboration between the Association for Cancer Immunotherapy CIMT and the Champalimaud Foundation will address promising paths towards effective cellular treatment modalities for patients with solid cancer and discuss the boundaries of synthetically engineered immune cells. The meeting will also discuss the innovation gap between academic and small biotech driven research, and the challenges of safe, biologically, and clinically relevant phase I / II clinical trials. 

The summit sessions will offer a patient-focused perspective on cell therapy possibilities by addressing the quality and nature of the “cellular product” as the starting material for cell therapy; patient-specific therapy and product development including molecular engineering; longevity and “fitness” of cell products after adoptive transfer, and mobilization of autologous anti-cancer directed T-cell responses.
