Inaugural Miami Cancer Institute Summit of the Americas on Immunotherapies for Hematologic Malignancies

January 24–25, 2020 | Friday-Saturday
The Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove, Miami

About Event

 Summit Overview

Given the increasing frequency of hematologic malignancies, complexities of treatments with novel agents and particularly with immunotherapeutic approaches, there is a need for oncologists, hematologists, oncology nurses and pharmacists to engage in thoughtful discussions with experts in these fields. In addition, there is emerging data about the biology of these malignancies impacting optimal management of patients with these disorders. Clinical decision making and management, therefore, have become more complex.

This one-and-a-half-day summit has been designed to provide an overview and opportunity to learn about the most recent advances in the treatment of leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma and stem cell transplantation by novel immunotherapies and treatment combinations. Updates on evolving immunologically and molecular-based system therapies will be profiled and discussed.
