Bridging the Gap between Bench and Clinic

This year the 14th annual Moving Targets will bring together leading experts who have harnessed the immune system to develop therapies and further the mechanistic understanding of Alzheimer's disease, infectious diseases, and cancer. A special talk will shed light on the regulatory paradigms and safety considerations involved in translating immunotherapies from bench to clinic.

Networking Lunch


Networking Lunch


Moving Targets will feature a networking lunch, where attendees will have the chance to connect with the prestigious speakers from the symposium. This provides a unique opportunity in which attendees can network with scientists conducting cutting edge research. Upon arrival attendees will be asked if they wish to participate in the networking lunch and which speaker they would prefer to sit with. There will be one speaker per table. Space is limited and will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you wish to participate in the networking lunch we recommend that you arrive early to guarantee a seat.
