    Cytokine-Based Immunotherapies

    Keynote Speaker: James W. Mier (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/ Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA)
    Speakers: Stephen D. Gillies (Provenance Biopharmaceuticals, Carlisle, MA), Dario Neri (Philogen, Zurich, Switzerland), Jerome Ritz (Harvard Medical School), Gilles Uzé (Université Montpellier II, Montpellier, France), K. Dane Wittrup (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA)

    Systemic toxicity currently prevents exploiting the potential of many cytokines to treat cancer, viral infections, inflammatory and autoimmune conditions. Targeted delivery of immune-stimulatory or immune-regulatory cytokines offers much promise.
