Agenda Day 1 @ 5:15

The generation and modulation of immunogenic cell death using oncolytic viruses

  • What is immunogenic cell death? Mechanism and modulation by oncolytic viruses
  • Signalling pathways that regulate the tumor immunosuppressive milieu and their alteration
  • Cancer stem cells immunology and inhibition of tumor immune escape
  • Modulation of immunogenic cell death by combining oncolytic viruses with other therapies
