    Our Director of Health Promotion, Andi Dwyer, will be attending the International Cancer Immunotherapy Conference. Follow along with us on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.

    Read about the conference below.

    With the explosion of interest in cancer immunotherapy and the proliferation of scientific meetings in the field, the time is right for a coordinated effort hosted by the field's leaders. The Cancer Research Institute (CRI), the Association for Cancer Immunotherapy (CIMT), the European Academy of Tumor Immunology (EATI), and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) are proud to join forces to sponsor the first International Cancer Immunotherapy Conference. This collaborative meeting will be held every other year, in lieu of each organization's individual meeting, and will alternate between the United States and Europe. We believe that by combining our efforts we can be more effective and efficient in disseminating the latest cutting-edge information.

    The inaugural meeting will take place at the Sheraton Times Square in New York City on September 16-19, 2015. Entitled "Translating Science into Survival," it will cover all areas of inquiry in cancer immunology and immunotherapy, including:  immune regulation of T cell responsiveness, genomic methods for identifying tumor antigens, the tumor microenvironment, T cell therapies, checkpoint blockade, biomarkers, combinations, and the microbiome. More than 60 talks by acknowledged leaders in these areas will be given.

    This joint meeting will provide an unparalleled opportunity for teaching, learning, and networking among all stakeholders in the field: scientists, clinicians, regulators, drug developers, and patient advocates.

    Federal funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is critical for the health and economic security of our nation. On September 17, 2015, a broad coalition of groups from the medical research advocacy community will meet with House and Senate offices in Washington, D.C., to urge Congress to provide robust, sustained and predictable increases in funding for the NIH in 2016 and beyond.

    Join the Rally for Medical Research Hill Day to raise awareness during a critical time about the urgent need for an increased investment in the NIH to improve health, spur more progress, inspire more hope and save more lives.
