The 15th meeting of the Association for Cancer Immunotherapy is an anniversary members symposium that will celebrate the work of cancer immunotherapy research through scientific presentations and a special awards dinner. The symposium will bring together leading international experts on adoptive cell theapy, cancer epigenetics, antibodies, cancer vaccination and immunoguiding. They will present an overview of past and present developments and will discuss clinical and translational developments.
