Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural

Immunology for Biotherapeutics

Understanding and Manipulating the Immune System for Therapeutic Advantage

October 22, 2018

Many of the exciting developments in drug discovery and development today concern the immune response and its manipulation and control. Our understanding of immune involvement in therapeutic disorders and their treatment is developing all the time. T and B lymphocyte subsets, NK cells, macrophages, dendritic cells and cytokines are all involved in a complex manner, and interference with one could have disastrous consequences if not well understood. At this symposium, attendees will find out how to utilize the immune system and overcome inhibitory factors without overlooking potential safety issues.

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:

  • Current understanding of the role of T regulatory cells and their modulation
  • The basis of T cell activation at the cell surface with MHC complexes
  • Developments with our understanding of innate Immunity
  • Applying bispecific technology to modulate the immune response for therapeutic intervention
  • Biomarkers associated with responses to Immunotherapy
  • Immunology safety considerations for biotherapeutics
  • Biopharmaceutical product immunogenicity: what causes it and what are the safety and efficacy consequences?
  • Vaccines: understanding the mode of action, progress to date, and ongoing challenges
  • Harnessing the body’s natural immune response to fight cancer
  • Adoptive T cell therapy
