Understand and manage immune responses in drug and vaccine development
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 Europe 2019 for a focussed conference to learn the latest developments in this fast-developing field covering multiple aspects of in the development of modern therapeutics. This focussed meeting is a forum for key people involved in wanting to characterize immune modulation following 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 meeting in Oxford, is now in its seventh consecutive year having also been held in Cambridge, MA. It offers an unparalleled opportunity to meet are share information with like-minded scientists from other organisations, and to help shape the future of your R&D programs.
Confirmed speakers to date: (additional speakers and full programme will follow shortly)

Feedback from previous conferences:
“Mastering Immunogenicity captured the breadth and depth of immunogenicity issues faced by industry today” (Tim Hickling, Pfizer)
“I absolutely enjoyed the talks and very much liked the small and highly interactive fomat of the meeting. The quality of the program was very high and I indeed picked up some useful ideas that I am incorporating into our programs.” (Shahla Abodollahi, Celgene)
“It has been a terrific opportunity to learn more about immunology, and immunogenicity in particular, from esteemed colleagues in the field, interacting with them and sharing some of my views on the topic. I look forward to more of these.” (Andrea Ferrante, Eli Lilly)
“I also had a great time during the meeting. It was truly excellent in content and organization.” (Julio Delgado, University of Utah)
“It was a terrific event, with excellent speakers and great networking/brainstorming opportunities at the breaks and with the roundtable” (Valerie Quarmby, Genentech)
“Great first experience. I enjoyed the breadth of topics” (Laurent Malherbe, Eli Lilly)
“Great speakers with diverse topics. I enjoyed the deep science and also the opinions from experts in the field” (Xiaoying Chen, Pfizer)
“Covered a diverse array of subjects. I enjoyed the networking opportunities” (Shinu John, Moderna Therapeutics)
“Excellent event” (George Gunn, Janssen R&D)
“Really liked the interactive environment. In-depth discussions with very relevant colleagues”
“I really enjoyed the very good quality, sparkling diversity, but still keeping focus”
“Very nice and comprehensive topics in this symposium. I have learnt a lot from it.” (Pu Shi, Takeda)
“This is a fantastic conference that is a good mix of vaccine and biotherapeutic folks. Facilitates learning and collaboration.” (Priya Sriraman, Celgene)
The City of Oxford

Situated approximately 50 miles north-west of London, modern Oxford owes much to the University, which was founded in 1096 and is the oldest university in the English speaking world. Visitors to the city can tour splendid British architecture, including such icons as the mid-18th century Radcliffe Camera, the Bodleian Library and the Bridge of Sighs.
For further information about Oxford and the surrounding area browse, “Experience Oxfordshire”, the official tourism website for Oxfordshire.
Although no accommodation is available at the college, we would recommend the following establishments just a short distance away:
The Best Western Linton Lodge Hotel: www.bw-lintonlodgehotel.co.uk (2 minute walk)
Parklands Bed & Breakfast: www.parklandsoxford.co.uk (5 minute walk)
Cotswold Lodge Hotel:www.cotswoldlodgehotel.co.uk (10 minute walk)
Oxford is 56 miles (90km) north-west of London, with excellent bus and rail services.
There are 3 major international airports (London Heathrow, LHR; London Gatwick, LGW; Birmingham International, BHX) within 2 hours travel time. The simplest and best option if you are flying to any of these airports is to take the regular bus service direct to Oxford City. See http://airline.oxfordbus.co.uk for details. Airport Taxi Transfers: Pryors (+44 1235 812346).
The city is well served by public transport but the historic nature of the city center means parking spaces are in very short supply. There is no parking available at the conference venue. We would recommend parking at the Water Eaton Park and Ride or Peartree Park and Ride. Both are just a 15-20 minute bus ride to the conference.
The closest rail stations are Oxford (serving direct trains from London Paddington) and Oxford Parkway (serving direct trains from London Marylebone). Both stations are a 15-20 minute direct bus ride / 10 minute taxi ride from the venue. See www.nationalrail.co.uk for more details.
