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!

Leukemia’s Surroundings Key to its Growth
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a type of cancer found primarily in children can grow only when signaled to do so by other nearby cells that are noncancerous.
Unique Mechanism for a High-Risk Leukemia
Researchers uncovered the aberrant mechanism underlying a notoriously treatment-resistant acute lymphoblastic leukemia subtype; findings offer lessons for understanding all cancers.
Food Triggers Creation of Regulatory T Cells
IBS researchers document how normal diet establishes immune tolerance conditions in the small intestine.
Therapeutic Approach Gives Hope for Multiple Myeloma
A new therapeutic approach tested by a team from Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital (CIUSSS-EST, Montreal) and the University of Montreal gives promising results for the treatment of multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow currently considered incurable with conventional chemotherapy and for which the average life expectancy is about 6 or 7 years.
Cellular 'Relief Valve'
A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has solved a long-standing mystery in cell biology by showing essentially how a key “relief-valve” in cells does its job.
Switch Lets Salmonella Fight, Evade Immune System
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have discovered a molecular regulator that allows salmonella bacteria to switch from actively causing disease to lurking in a chronic but asymptomatic state called a biofilm.
Tricked-Out Immune Cells Could Attack Cancer
New cell-engineering technique may lead to precision immunotherapies.
Neural Networks Adapt to the Presence of a Toxic HIV Protein
HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) afflict approximately half of HIV infected patients.
HIV Protein Manipulates Hundreds of Human Genes
Findings search for new or improved treatments for patients with AIDS.
Breaking the Brain’s Garbage Disposal
The children’s ataxia gene problem turned out to be not such a big deal genetically — it was such a slight mutation that it barely changed the way the cells made the protein.
