ESMO Immuno-Oncology Congress 2021 - Geneva, Switzerland, 8-11 December

Location: Geneva
Address Palexpo

Lugano, Switzerland, 26 November 2021 – The ESMO Immuno-Oncology Congress 2021, the European platform dedicated to the development and use of immunotherapies for cancer treatment, will be held as an onsite and online congress.

The scientific programme will provide a comprehensive overview of immunotherapy-based cancer treatment, from the basics of immunotherapies to the latest research results, and from the understanding of the different treatment options to the management of toxicities and interpretation of new data.

Programme highlights
  • New immunotherapies to improve the treatment of solid tumours: From cell-based therapies to soluble T-cell engagers and T-cell co-stimulation
  • Biomarkers for immunotherapy: The future is in the hand of tools built on combinations
  • Trained immunity as a new promising oncology target
  • Tumour mutational burden as a number to enhance prediction of outcomes in patients treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors
  • Updates and novel data in melanoma, haematological malignancies, gastrointestinal, thoracic, head and neck, breast and gynecological cancers

ESMO Immuno-Oncology 2020 and 2021 Keynote lectures
  • “The crucial players of the immune microenvironment”, by Wolf-Hervé Fridman, winner of the ESMO Immuno-Oncology 2021 Award
  • “Checkpoint blockade therapy for melanoma: combinations to improve outcomes” by Jedd D. Wolchok, winner of the ESMO Immuno-Oncology 2020 Award

For well over a decade, in my capacity as a researcher, broadcaster, and producer, I have relied heavily on Alphagalileo.
All of my work trips have been planned around stories that I've found on this site.
The under embargo section allows us to plan ahead and the news releases enable us to find key experts.
Going through the tailored daily updates is the best way to start the day. It's such a critical service for me and many of my colleagues.
Koula Bouloukos, Senior manager, Editorial & Production Underknown
We have used AlphaGalileo since its foundation but frankly we need it more than ever now to ensure our research news is heard across Europe, Asia and North America. As one of the UK’s leading research universities we want to continue to work with other outstanding researchers in Europe. AlphaGalileo helps us to continue to bring our research story to them and the rest of the world.
Peter Dunn, Director of Press and Media Relations at the University of Warwick
AlphaGalileo has helped us more than double our reach at SciDev.Net. The service has enabled our journalists around the world to reach the mainstream media with articles about the impact of science on people in low- and middle-income countries, leading to big increases in the number of SciDev.Net articles that have been republished.
