Immuno-oncology digests

In this online seminar series, we review the biological principles behind immunotherapy and how measurements of cell avidity may be used as a functional biomarker to help fundamentally improve cell therapy development.

Immuno-oncology digests #5: Leveraging potently tumor-reactive TCRs for cellular therapy

NEW In this webinar, Dr. Wouter Scheper, Senior Postdoctoral Fellow from The Netherlands Cancer Institute, will discuss how leveraging potently tumor-reactive T cell receptors can be useful for effective cell therapy for cancer. He will also demonstrate how looking into the intercellular interactions, also known as cell avidity, helps provide valuable information to identify potent TCR T cells.

Immuno-oncology digests #4: TCR signal strength defines distinct mechanisms of T-cell dysfunction and cancer evasion (journal club)

In this webinar, we discussed the recent work by Shakiba and colleagues, who take a different approach modifying the tumor associated antigen to examine the impact of TCR signaling strength, what they might mean for cellular therapies, and how incorporating cell avidity measurements with z-Movi® Cell Avidity Analyzer can be used to create a more comprehensive understanding of a cellular product and predict in vivo outcomes.
