Investigating the Types of Functions Required to Formulate an Effective Multi-Functional Cell Therapy

Time: 8:30 am
day: Pre-Conference Workshop Day


While success in solid tumors in still limited, clinical results from other diseases shows that cell therapies have the potential to provide life-changing benefits to patients. As the industry innovates by combining anti-tumor functions, it is more important than ever to clarify the different roles these can provide, to weaponize them effectively against solid tumors.

This session will discuss:

  • Considering the rationale for building in different functionalities to target solid tumors, such as homing, logic gating, persistence, checkpoint inhibition and arming
  • Strategizing the best criteria to ensure appropriate function selection and improve efficiency of the clinical development pipeline
  • Discussing novel engineering approaches to factor in multiple functions at one time and the impact of this on regulatory requirements
