1st European CAR T Cell Meeting

The 1st European CAR T Cell Meeting is jointly organized by the European Hematology Association (EHA) and the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT).

The recent approval of the first CAR T cell treatments in Europe presents a great opportunity to fight hematological malignancies but also poses serious challenges given the peculiar nature of the treatment. Patients, physicians, nurses, hospitals and whole health systems need to learn how to select the right treatments, handle specific toxicities, organize treatment units and cope with the increasing costs connected with CAR T therapy.

The meeting in Paris will bring together experts in the field to discuss and learn from mutual experience.

Emmanuel Donnadieu and Chahrazade Kantari-Mimoun of CARAT partner INSERM will join the conference to present a poster on “A Comparison of CD20 and EGFR CAR T cell efficacy in haematological malignancies versus solid tumors”.
