International Tutorial on Cancer Immunotherapy Research Design

The different modalities of  Cancer Immunotherapy wether cellular,  monoclonal antibodies, different vaccine modalities or oncolytic viruses have changed the traditional diagnostic-therapeutic approach in many of our cancer patients.

At the same time, there has been a progressively increasing change in the design of cancer immunotherapy studies, In order to optimize the benefit of our patients in the shortest period of time the preclinical level, in-vitro or animal models, and at the clinical level, to try to benefit our patients in their different phases of development.

The final success of a given research study depends on the appropriate design of methods, objectives and real implementation of the clinical the preclinical study, and whether it can later be replicated or its application generalized to all our patients.
Thus arises the need to bring together the best worldwide experts and trainers in this International Tutorial on Cancer Immunotherapy Research Studies Design.

Six intensive online working days

From 22nd to 26th November, 2021. The Tutorial will be developed in 6 intensive online working days consisting on:

•Master Lecture on Advanced Concepts of Cancer Immunotherapy Studies Design (Overall design, hypothesis, primary objectives, secondary objective, material and methods, statistical analysis, feasibility-opportunity).

•Analysis in small groups by sections of the design of the investigators' draft.

•Individualized analysis by draft sections with the expert trainer.

•Lessons of the day. Summary by the trainers of the most representative changes introduced in the corresponding draft section.

•“Old Stories from my research experience". Informal discussion of ocurrences illustrating some of the key aspects of Cancer immunotherapy research.

•Final protocols presentation and awards ceremony (day 6).
