PICI Network Members Featured at #AACRtii23

Six members of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy (PICI) Network will present at the AACR Special Conference on Tumor Immunology and Immunotherapy, Oct. 1-4 in Toronto. The conference aims to foster a multidisciplinary exchange of ideas between basic cancer immunologists, non-immunologists and clinical oncologists to develop translatable approaches that harness the immune system to treat cancer.

Crystal Mackall, MD, Center Director of PICI at Stanford Medicine, will deliver the keynote address. She will be introduced by fellow PICI Network member Philip Greenberg, MD, of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, a co-chair of the conference who also will present.

The other featured PICI Network members (in order of their presentations) are:
