Dr. Willem Mulder and Dr. Joost Kreijtz of immunotherapy biotech company Trained Therapeutix Discover will join guests to talk about their pioneering research into the immune system and its importance in the quest for a cure for cancer.

“Dr. Kreijtz will talk about the immune system, its ancient yet recently discovered memory–trained immunity – and targeting the immune system as a cancer treatment modality,” explained Dr. Mulder.

“I will talk about developing bio-engineered therapeutics that engage our immune system and develop such concepts from an academic lab to the clinic through entrepreneurship.”

The speakers will be joined by other world-renowned experts who have helped to develop new treatments and cures for cancer.
