Designed for clinicians, scientists, and all other members of the cancer care and research community, this three-day meeting focuses on clinical and translational advances in immuno-oncology. Expert faculty offer new insights on the application of immunotherapy in melanoma, lung cancer, genitourinary cancers, head and neck cancer, and hematologic malignancies. Faculty will also discuss considerations for clinical trial designs, the treatment of microsatellite instability high solid tumors, and emerging targets in immunotherapy. Abstract presentations will be featured in Oral Abstract Sessions and Poster Sessions.
Accreditation and Designation Statement

This Symposium is designed for physicians and researchers involved in multidisciplinary clinical cancer care including, but not limited to medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists; pathologists; radiologists; and other translational-oriented laboratory scientists; nurses, pharmacists, advanced practice providers, and other health care professionals involved in clinical cancer care and cancer research in immuno-oncology.
Educational Needs Statement
The Symposium provides a clinical focus on the use of immunotherapy to treat patients with cancer. Even as research efforts continue to swell in this area, there have also been a number of new immunotherapy-related approvals of both agents and diagnostics over the past year. This has created a clear educational need for oncology professionals who are facing an increasing complexity in selecting and interpreting diagnostic tests, making treatment decisions, and managing the effects of those treatments.
Upon participation in this activity, attendees will be able to
- Demonstrate competence in describing principles and the use of cellular therapy in treating patients with cancer;
- Outline the effective use of genomics data to inform both treatment selection and potential immune response;
- Compare and contrast effectiveness in the treatment of patients with cancer in different disease sites, and how these experiences have informed clinical research and potentially led to drug approvals that are not tissue specific;
