SMi - Cancer Vaccines

18 Sep 2013 - 19 Sep 2013 - London, UK

SMi proudly presents the 2nd annual conference on Cancer Vaccines taking place on 18th and 19th September, London. This year’s event aims to focus on innovation and novel strategies within the field, the regulatory environment, and the future direction of cancer vaccines; as well as offering current preclinical and clinical outlook, data, and case studies.

As cancer is still one of the greatest causes of human mortality it is a very attractive target for vaccination. Despite a dramatic increase in research within cancer vaccines in the last decade, there is still a need for more effective therapies to maximise cancer survival rates. Novel strategies for target selection, vaccine design, immunostimulatory therapies, and other biologics are constantly being developed and improved.

Cancer Vaccine 2013 will examine not only current clinical data but also the new innovations within the field. This informative event will draw from expert opinions, groundbreaking data, and regulatory factors to look to the future and assess where the field is advancing. This really is a unique event not to be missed.

Benefits of Attending:

Explore innovative and novel strategies, approaches, and vaccines within the field.

Discover future trends, the direction of the field, and combination strategies in both preclinical and clinical situations.

Evaluate the regulatory environment and the subsequent impact on cancer vaccine development.

Consider current trial data, clinical developments, and successful therapeutic vaccines

Learn from successes, failures, and challenges from experts in the field, and apply to optimise vaccine development

Speakers include:

Alex Kudrin, Medical Assessor, Biologicals Licensing, MHRA

Kevin Pollock, Senior Epidemiologist, NHS National Services Scotland

Martin Glennie, Professor of Immunochemistry, University Of Southampton

Pierre van der Bruggen, Group Leader, Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research

Rose-Ann Padua, Research Director, INSERM

Sonia Quaratino, Senior Medical Director and Immunology Advisor, Merck Serono

Promising Class of New Cancer Drugs Cause Memory Loss in Mice
New findings from The Rockefeller University suggest that the original version of BET inhibitors causes molecular changes in mouse neurons, and can lead to memory loss in mice that receive it.
Electrical Control of Cancer Cells
Research led by scientists at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) has revealed a new electrical mechanism that can control these switches.
Signature of Microbiomes Linked to Schizophrenia
Studying microbiomes in throat may help identify causes and treatments of brain disorder.
Inflammation Linked to Colon Cancer Metastasis
A new Arizona State University research study led by Biodesign Institute executive director Raymond DuBois has identified for the first time the details of how inflammation triggers colon cancer cells to spread to other organs, or metastasize.
Structural Discoveries Could Aid in Better Drug Design
Scientists have uncovered the structural details of how some proteins interact to turn two different signals into a single integrated output.
Determining the Age of Fingerprints
Watch the imprint of a tire track in soft mud, and it will slowly blur, the ridges of the pattern gradually flowing into the valleys. Researchers have tested the theory that a similar effect could be used to give forensic scientists a way to date fingerprints.
Genetic Overlapping in Multiple Autoimmune Diseases May Suggest Common Therapies
CHOP genomics expert leads analysis of genetic architecture, with eye on repurposing existing drugs.
Surprising Mechanism Behind Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Uncovered
Now, scientists at TSRI have discovered that the important human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus, develops resistance to this drug by “switching on” a previously uncharacterized set of genes.
Tissue Bank Pays Dividends for Brain Cancer Research
Checking what’s in the bank – the Brisbane Breast Bank, that is – has paid dividends for UQ cancer researchers.
Researchers Publish Landmark “Basket Study”
Researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) have announced results from the first published basket study, a new form of clinical trial design that explores responses to drugs based on the specific mutations in patients’ tumors rather than where their cancer originated.
