With the explosive excitement and clinical proof of concept utilizing CD47 approaches, 2020 is the year for macrophage development, as we witness greater interest and investment in new work on novel macrophage targets outside of CD47.

The Macrophage-directed Therapies Summit is focused on optimizing the potential of macrophage therapies, through direct utilization of cells or small molecule approaches to target and stimulate macrophage cells in vivo for oncological indications and beyond

Join us online this October as the trailblazers of macrophage therapeutic development, from the likes of Carisma Therapeutics, Faron Pharmaceuticals, and Verseau Therapeutics come together to advance the fundamental understanding of macrophage biology, avoiding on-target toxicities and the emerging field of macrophage cellular immunotherapy.

Here is a snapshot of the top 5 discussion you can’t afford to miss:

macrophage 1
