Cancer Research & Immuno-Oncology Week Virtual Event Series 2022

Labroots is excited to bring leading academia and industry experts, research scholars, healthcare and medical professionals, clinicians, oncologists, and top scientists under one virtual roof at our 10th Annual Event in the Cancer Research & Immuno-Oncology Week Virtual Event Series 2022, hosted on October 4-6, 2022.  

Cancer Research & Immuno-Oncology Week 2022 will offer a 3-day content-rich program providing invited lectures, thought-provoking discussions, and posters to explore global developments and advancements in interdisciplinary cancer research and therapies. Recent breakthroughs in Immuno-oncology research translate into a paradigm shift in attacking cancer, and is considered to be one of the most promising areas of research in the world of anti-cancer therapeutics. In this virtual event you will learn from experts how immunotherapies can work alone, together, or in a combination for prevention, diagnosis and other treatments to fight cancer. 

This year's topics and tracks include:

Day 1 - October 4th:

  • Innovative Approaches to Target the Oncoprotein K-Ras in Cancer
  • Bi-Specific Antibodies
  • Organoid Platforms for Predicting Responses
  • Using Bacteria to Fight Cancer

Day 2 - October 5th:

    • Antibody Drug Conjugates
    • Tertiary Lymphoid Structures
    • Myeloid Cells
    • Mesenchymal Stem Cells
  • Neoantigen Vaccines
  • Next-generation Checkpoint Targets
  • Oncolytic Viruses

Cell Therapy

  • Overcoming the Inhibitory Tumor Microenvironment
  • Emerging Cell Therapies (beyond CAR T cells)
  • Novel Engineering Strategies

Day 3 - October 6th:

  • Advocating for the Patient
  • Using EHR Data to Advance Cancer Therapy
  • Cancer Epidemiology

Call for Posters — Do you work in Cancer Research or Immuno-Oncology? Whether in academia, industry, or medicine, we welcome posters from all researchers at all levels. Posters are a great way to showcase your novel results and methods with a wide, international, audience. At Labroots, you can do this free of cost, and without leaving the comfort of your home or office. Submit your poster here!

Virtual poster sessions offer the unique opportunity to present your data to a global audience with a simple PDF and discuss results with interested colleagues through email, video chat, or via our virtual event networking lounge. The added bonus here? Unlike most other conferences and virtual events, registration and poster submission are completely free. 

New to virtual posters? Check out our tips on how to design an effective poster for a virtual conference.
