The Cancer Research Institute (CRI), the Association for Cancer lmmunotherapy (CIMT), the European Academy of Tumor Immunology (EATI), and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) are proud to join forces once again to sponsor the Fourth International Cancer lmmunotherapy Conference.

The 2018 meeting will take place at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York, New York, USA from September 30 - October 3, 2018. The program will focus on "Translating Science into Survival," and feature talks from more than 50 leaders in the field covering all areas of inquiry in cancer immunology and immunotherapy, including: neoantigens and vaccines, novel mechanisms of immunosuppression and immune evasion, biomarkers, microbiota, oncolytic viruses, new agents and their mode of action, combination therapies, adoptive cell therapies, new checkpoints, non-checkpoint immunotherapies, and the tumor microenvironment.

This meeting will provide an unparalleled opportunity for teaching, learning, and networking among all stakeholders in the field: scientists, clinicians, regulators, drug developers, and patient advocates.


The Third CRI-CIMT-EATI-AACR International Cancer Immunotherapy Conference, Mainz, Germany, 06/09/2017-09/09/2017 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 22 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). 
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits®. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme.
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
