Oregon hosts global immunology conference featuring Providence immuno-oncology research
The annual event will be held May 6 through 10 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon, and is an opportunity for the immunology community to network and hear from some of the world’s most prominent scientists. We are delighted that our researchers at the Earle A. Chiles Research Institute, a division of Providence Cancer Institute of Oregon, are among the program chairs and presenters.
Of note, Michael Gough, Ph.D., member, Integrated Therapies Laboratory, will chair the Non-Immune Therapies in Cancer block symposium, and Andrew D. Weinberg, member and Judith Ann Hartmann Endowed Chair for the Basic Immunology Laboratory, will co-chair the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) guest symposium.
A complete program along with event details, presentation dates and times can be found online.
