44th Annual UNC Lineberger Scientific Symposium

University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center’s 44th Annual Scientific Symposium will bring together experts from the United States and Canada to the William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education March 18-19 to share the latest on the biology of the immune system and cancer.

Researchers will speak on a variety of topics related to the biology of the immune system and cancer, including on immunotherapy treatments such as checkpoint inhibitors that release the “brakes” on immune cells, as well as findings about aspects of the immune system that suppress the tumor-killing response.

The symposium is free and open to the public, faculty, trainees and students, but registration is required. Lunch can be ordered as part of registration and costs $20 per day. For more information, contact Melissa Mack at 919-966-0509, or by email, emstroud@med.unc.edu.
