The meeting „Tumor Immunology meets Oncology (TIMO)“ has established itself as an outstanding platform for exchange between scientists, clinicians and junior staff and as one of the leading European conferences in the field of tumor immunology. From 25-27 April 2019, it will take place for the 15th time at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg in the lecture hall of the University Hospital Kröllwitz, Halle (Saale). With an increasing number of participants and a positive echo throughout, we are able to win not only highly recognized national but also international speakers – just to name a few keynote speakers of the past years: Thomas Gajewski (University of Chicago, 2018), Alberto Mantovani (Instituto Clinico Humanitas Milan, 2017), Olivera J. Finn (University of Pittsburgh, 2016), Nicholas McGranahan (The Francis Crick Institute London, 2015).
For our 2019 meeting we have already received commitments from, among others, Pamela Ohashi (University Health Network, Toronto), Ping-Chih Ho (Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Lausanne) and Sandra DeMaria (Weill Cornell Medical College, New York).
The symposium takes place over three days and begins with a workshop that enables young scientists to present their own data in a short lecture. The latest methods and techniques in the field of tumor treatment will also be presented. The accompanying poster exhibition facilitates discussion of further projects and the establishment of new cooperations. Following the workshop, we will award prizes for the three best lectures and posters. The scientific programme will be rounded off with a networking evening allowing the discussion of projects and experiments in a relaxed atmosphere.
If you would like to have the chance to be selected for an oral presentation or poster please register by March 3, 2019.

On the following two days, the established and renowned scientists will have their say. In 2018, the focus was on the role of the immune escapes of tumors and the tumor micromilieu as well as the development of innovative immunotherapeutic strategies, their current clinical application and the characterization of biomarkers that indicate the response to therapy and/or the development of resistances. A particular focus of the symposium was the development and application of new immunotherapeutic strategies such as CAR cell therapy.
The meeting is made possible by the great commitment of the members of the Institute of Medical Immunology, the support of the German Society of Immunology (DGfI), the Society of Immunotherapy in Cancer (SITC) and its staff as well as the commitment of numerous sponsors. We are looking forward to another exciting event in 2019!

Without the support of our sponsors, we would not be able to offer this meeting at prices that also allow young scientists to participate. Thank you very much!
