About the Targeting Innate Immunity Congress

Recognizing the importance of the relatively untapped innate immune system as a possible tool for therapeutic intervention, the Inaugural Targeting Innate Immunity Congress will convene all thought leaders including industry experts, academic researchers and clinicians to deepen our understanding of innate immunity and learn to harness its power for effective immunotherapies. This two-day congress focuses on the current landscape and novel advances in the field of innate immunotherapy, such as natural killer cells, macrophages and dendritic cells. Be part of the conversation on mechanisms of action of innate cells, effective modulating strategies, the impact of tumor microenvironment and many more. Share new insights and learn from others to maximize the success of your strategies in an intimate setting created for participants to exchange innovative ideas, foster meaningful collaborations and keep up-to-date with new discoveries in the innate immunity research community.
