MVA Oncology Network – Immuno-Oncology

Medicon Valley Alliance together with member company Miltenyi Biotec have the pleasure to invite you to the 12th meeting of the Medicon Valley Alliance Oncology Network on the 16th of March, 2022. Immuno-oncology is sometimes referred to as the fifth pillar of cancer treatment, alongside surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and precision therapy. The activation and utilization of the immune system to treat cancer has been successful for some types of cancers, but the success rate varies between different variants. As we continuously learn from current therapies, new ones are emerging. In this MVA Oncology network meeting we would like to invite you to a discussion and interaction on current immuno-oncology developments in the Medicon Valley region. In the meeting we will hear from experts in the immuno-oncology field from academia and research to innovative companies and more established ones.

Time: 14.30 – 18.00
Venue: Auditorium, Arne Jacobsens Alle 13, 2300 Ørestad City, Copenhagen
