3rd Cancer Immunotherapy and Immunomonitoring (CITIM 2013)

22 Apr 2013 - 25 Apr 2013 - Krakow, Poland



Bookmark and Share


We invite you to attend the Cancer Immunotherapy and Immunomonitoring Conference taking place on April 22-25, 2013 in Krakow, Poland. The accumulated knowledge in cancer immunology and encouraging results from recent cancer immunotherapy clinical trials indicate that the immune system plays an essential role in host defense against cancer and can be exploited for effective cancer therapy. However, the existing gap between laboratory and clinical investigators severely hampers the translation of fundamental discoveries into clinical applications. 

The main goal of this exciting conference will provide a joint forum for leading basic researchers and clinical investigators in the fields of cancer immunology and immunotherapy that would serve to accelerate translation of basic research into effective treatment of cancer in children and adults.

We will bring scientists, clinicians, medical practitioners and specialists, students, R&D experts and patients together and discuss the latest therapeutic, preventive and diagnostic developments in the field.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!

Untangling Disease-Related Protein Misfolding
Work advances understanding of genetic forms of thrombosis, emphysema, cirrhosis of the liver, neurodegenerative diseases and inflammation, among others.
Developing a More Precise Seasonal Flu Vaccine
During the 2014-15 flu season, the poor match between the virus used to make the world’s vaccine stocks and the circulating seasonal virus yielded a vaccine that was less than 20 percent effective.
Fighting Cancer with Borrowed Immunity
A new step in cancer immunotherapy: researchers from the Netherlands Cancer Institute and University of Oslo/Oslo University Hospital show that even if one's own immune cells cannot recognize and fight their tumors, someone else's immune cells might.
Loss Of Y Chromosome Increases Risk Of Alzheimer’s
Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This is in addition to an increased risk of death from other causes, including many cancers. These new findings by researchers at Uppsala University could lead to a simple test to identify those at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Immune Cells Remember Their First Meal
Scientists at the University of Bristol have identified the trigger for immune cells' inflammatory response – a discovery that may pave the way for new treatments for many human diseases.
"Sunscreen" Gene May Guard Against Melanoma
USC-led study reveals that melanoma patients with deficient or mutant copies of the gene are less protected from harmful ultraviolet rays.
Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells Play Role in Tumor Growth
Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine have reported a new mechanism that helps cancer cells engage myeloid-derived suppressor cells.
Drug Might Help Treat Sepsis
A DNA enzyme called Top1 plays a key role in turning on genes that cause inflammation in mouse and human cells in response to pathogens. A drug blocking this enzyme rescued mice from lethal inflammatory responses, suggesting a potential treatment for sepsis.
Large-scale HIV Vaccine Trial to Launch in South Africa
NIH-funded study will test safety, efficacy of vaccine regimen.
Immune System Implicated in Gastroschisis
UCSF researchers show that the immune system is implicated in gastroschisis. The findings could lead to improved treatments for the belly birth defect.
