Seminar

Insights into Immuno-Oncology

4:00 PM — 6:30 PM

A Science Panel presented by BioLabs@CIC Philadelphia

Immunotherapy, or harnessing the body’s immune system to eliminate or slow the spread of disease, has the potential to upend conventional approaches for treating patients. Early results show improved outcomes and survival rates for people with certain types of cancers, leading to hopes that new drugs working in concert with the immune system may ultimately replace radiation and chemotherapy.

Our panel will give their views on the promise of immuno-oncology, focusing on therapies and technologies now emerging from research labs. The participants include an entrepreneur commercializing a platform technology developed at Penn to endow human macrophages with the ability to recognize and attack solid tumors; a researcher in cancer biology leading drug discovery for a large pharma; and an investor identifying local companies that may revolutionize our approach to medicine.

Following the program, meet Melina Blees, the site director for BioLabs@CIC Philadelphia. She will take you on a tour of the world-class co-working wet lab space that can house up to 75 of Philly’s best life science startups.

This event is free and open to the public. Space is limited, so be sure to register now.
