The inaugural TCR-based Therapies Summit is dedicated to supercharging your TCR design, translation and manufacturing strategy for solid tumor success

CAR-T has provided life-saving therapy in hematological cancers, but is yet to show great efficacy in solid tumor indications. Could TCR-based therapies become our weapon of choice in solid tumor indications? This April, go where no CAR-T has gone before by harnessing nature's weapon against solid tumors; arm your TCR therapies against 'undruggable' indications to produce safe, efficacious and life-saving therapies.

Why It’s Time For TCR-based Therapies

“Hanson Wade’s CAR-TCR summit has been already the leading specialized conference in the field – what a great suggestion to set up a dedicated forum for the rapidly growing TCR-T area.”

Steffen Walter, Chief Scientific Office, Immatics US

A record number of trials entered the clinic in 2019 with 15 trials forecast to finish in 2020 and many more to yield results. With an annual growth rate of 23.1%, this trend does not appear to be slowing, so this timely TCR-based therapy meeting is a unique opportunity to analyse and discuss progress as results emerge at a critical point in TCR development.

The large number of companies entering the TCR space is testament to progress in the field. With a combined effort to overcome HLA restrictions, there is a bright future for the delivery of TCR-based therapies to wider patient populations and cancer indications.

“The TCR-based Therapies Summit will be a great forum to learn from and network with leading scientists and companies working to develop T cells as immunotherapy especially for solid tumors.”

Laurence Cooper, Chief Executive Officer, Ziopharm Oncology
