Clinical Application of CAR T Cells

Description

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell (’Living Drug’) immunotherapy (‘Living Therapy’) is showing promising results in the treatment of cancers. There are nine ongoing clinical trials (Phase I & II) at Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) and more on track to be initiated next year.

Over the years, MSK has accumulated a breadth of knowledge about developing and translating these clinical trials from bench to bedside – choosing the ideal antigen target, constructing clinical grade CARs and vectors, investigating in clinically relevant models, manufacturing, quality control, developing protocols for FDA approval, optimizing consent forms covering emerging ethical issues, managing complications, and conducting world-class correlative science.

In addition to the MSK faculty, national and international experts will discuss clinical and translational aspects of CARs, both for hematological malignancies and solid tumors.

Audience

The target audience is medical oncologists and oncology fellows in training, basic scientists and research fellows in training, immunologists, and surgeons with interest in tumor immunology and immunotherapy.
