Mastering Immunity 2020 Virtual

Understand and manage immune responses in any setting

Join us for a virtual meeting

Tuesday, 15 September 2020

7:30am EDT / 1:30pm CET/ 8:30pm KST

As targeted immune therapies grow in complexity, understanding and characterizing immune responses has never been more important. Join us at Mastering Immunity 2020 Virtual to learn the latest developments in this evolving field. This meeting is a forum to share knowledge, perspectives and discuss solutions to the complex challenges of immunity following the delivery of biologics and other therapies.

Learn from academic and commercial experts as they highlight their discoveries in the context of both desired (in immuno-oncology and vaccines) and unwanted immune responses (i.e. immunogenicity to biotherapeutics or viral vectors). Share information with like-minded scientists from other organizations and explore new opportunities for collaboration. Discover fresh perspectives and novel ideas to combat the challenges in the rapidly changing field of immunology.
