CAR T cells in cancer treatment: make T cells great again!

We are pleased to announce the 9th Institut Cochin Symposium which will take place on November 16, 2018 at Institut Cochin in Paris under the title CAR T cells in cancer treatment: make T cells great again!

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell immunotherapy is a novel approach that has demonstrated very promising results in hematological malignancies. However, significant challenges remain to obtain similar results for solid tumors.

Topics will include the history of CAR T field, gene transfer and gene editing, tumor microenvironment, emerging technologies to monitor and control CAR T function, CAR T in the clinic.
