 “This is a fantastic conference that is a good mix of vaccine and biotherapeutic folks. Facilitates learning and collaboration.”
-Priya Sriraman, Celgene

As targeted immune therapies grow in complexity, understanding and controlling immune regulation has never been more important in the design of therapeutics.

Join experts in both academic and commercial immunology at Mastering Immunity 2020 for a focussed conference to learn the latest developments in this fast-developing field covering multiple aspects of the development of modern therapeutics. This focussed meeting is a forum for key people involved in characterization of immune modulation following the delivery of biologics and other therapies to come together to share knowledge, perspectives and discuss solutions to the complex challenges of immunity in this context. We will focus on manipulation and characterization of both desired (in immuno-oncology and vaccines) as well as unwanted immune responses (i.e. immunogenicity to biotherapeutics or viral vectors).

This year’s meeting in Cambridge, MA, is now in its eighth consecutive year having also been held in Oxford, UK. It offers an unparalleled opportunity to meet and share information with like-minded scientists from other organisations, and to help shape the future of your programs.
