Our speakers will share how immunotherapies are shaping the fields of cancer, transplantation, and others, right here in Pittsburgh.

Five successful Pittsburgh scientists and sector leaders will discuss the latest innovations and developments related to immunotherapy. After brief presentations from each of our speakers, our audience is encouraged to ask questions for an engaging panel discussion.
