6th International Cancer Vaccine Symposium
Tuesday, October 28, 2008 - Thursday, October 30, 2008
Presented by the Hasumi Foundation and the New York Academy of Sciences
With ten million individuals afflicted each year, no one is entirely immune to cancer and its devastating effects on individuals and families. But recent advances in the development of cancer vaccines—either as therapeutic agents or preventative measures—are hopeful indicators of progress in this field.
This symposium brings together world-renowned researchers and clinicians to shed light on these recent steps forward in cancer studies. Its primary goal is to contribute to the advancement of new immunotherapeutic and preventive approaches for future cancer vaccines.
