Webinar-Immune-Checkpoint-Banner.jpg
In this webinar, the speakers will explore how tumors exploit immune modulatory mechanisms to generate and thrive in their own immunosuppressive microenvironment. In addition, they will:
  • Provide a historical overview of immune checkpoint research and examine the effect of mutational load on clinical response
  • Explain how PD-1 immunotherapy stops certain cancers from turning off the anticancer immune response
  • Discuss general therapeutic approaches to activating the immune system to treat cancer
  • Answer your questions live during the broadcast!

Featured Speakers:

James P. Allison, Ph.D.
MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX

Gordon J. Freeman, Ph.D.
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA

Philip J. Gotwals, Ph.D

Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research, Cambridge, MA
