Mini-Symposium: Immunotherapy of Cancer


This mini-symposium will bring together scientists interested in the field of immunotherapy of cancer. It aims to provide an opportunity to learn about molecular mechanisms involved in anti-cancer immune responses and get updated on new strategies for cancer immunotherapy. The meeting is open to researchers in the topic and takes place at SciLifeLab in Uppsala, Husargatan 3 (BMC Building).
