Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 3rd Annual

Immunology and Oncology: Emerging Drug Targets

New Therapeutic Approaches for Autoimmunity, Inflammation and Cancer

September 28-29, 2021


Autoimmunity and cancer are increasingly being viewed as the opposite ends of the ‘immune activity’ continuum. An overactive immune system leads to autoimmunity and an underactive or evaded immune system enables cancer progression. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Immunology and Oncology: Emerging Drug Targets conference focuses on cell surface or intracellular molecules whose activity researchers are trying to modulate by biologics, small molecules or newer approaches, with the hopes of treating either autoimmune conditions/inflammation or cancer. Progress on new small molecules for treating COVID may also be covered.


Who should attend: Immuno-Oncologists; Immunologists; Discovery Oncologists; Discovery Biologists; Medicinal Chemists; Discovery Chemists; Pharmacology Immunologists; Directors, Principal Investigators, Scientists, Researchers, Postdoctoral Fellows, Graduate Students from Departments such as: Inflammation, Autoimmunity, Biotherapeutics, Cancer Drug Discovery


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Targets of the innate immune system such as STING and ROR
  • Modulating the tumor microenvironment (TME)
  • Tumor-associated Macrophages (TAMs)
  • Cellular metabolism targets: arginase pathway (A2AR), kyneurin pathway
  • New checkpoint inhibitors such as TIGIT, VISTA and LAG3
  • Intracellular kinase inhibitors
  • SARS-CoV-2 targets for new small molecule approaches

The deadline for priority consideration is March 29, 2021.


All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
