In the past few years, the rapidly advancing field of cancer immunology has produced several new methods of treating cancer.  Referred to as immunotherapies, these methods  increase the strength of human immune responses against tumors, either stimulating the activities of specific components of the immune system or counteracting signals produced by cancer cells that suppress immune responses.  This program will present several examples of these novel immunotherapies to illustrate progress and challenges in the development and regulatory approval of cancer therapeutics that represent an advanced step from conventional cancer treatment. The program will also survey recent progress in immunotherapy research and related opportunities for the biotechnology industry and improved cancer treatment options in the clinical setting.
