Immune Engineering Symposium 2019

When: January 28, 2019 - January 29, 2019, 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Where: MIT Kresge Auditorium, 48 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA

Join MIT’s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research for their 2-day symposium featuring cutting-edge research on immune engineering.

Biological, chemical, and materials engineers are engaged at the forefront of immunology research. At their disposal is an analytical toolkit honed to solve problems in the petrochemical and materials industries, which share the presence of complex reaction networks, and convective and diffusive molecular transport. Powerful synthetic capabilities have also been crafted: binding proteins can be engineered with effectively arbitrary specificity and affinity, and multifunctional nanoparticles and gels have been designed to interact in highly specific fashions with cells and tissues. Fearless pursuit of knowledge and solutions across disciplinary boundaries characterizes this nascent discipline of immune engineering, synergizing with immunologists and clinicians to put immunotherapy into practice. The 2019 symposium will include two poster sessions and four abstract-selected talks. Register now (closes December 14). Abstract submission deadline is November 15, 2018.
