This Annals volume includes invited short reviews on topics presented at the 7th International Cancer Vaccine Symposium “Renaissance of Cancer Immunotherapy”, held September 9-11, 2012 in Florence, Italy. The papers present progress in basic immunology research and translation to the development of cancer vaccines. The conference and papers pay tribute to the successes in the last few years that have led to the approval of new immunotherapies and the awarding of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to three immunologists. The conference was dedicated to one of these recipients Dr. Ralph Steinman, who discovered dendritic cells, immune cells that are vital for immune responses and immunotherapies for cancer.
