Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural

Oncolytic Virus Immunotherapy

Clinical Successes and Commercialization Strategies

20-21 March 2019


Oncolytic virotherapies have been emerging recently as potential in situ tumor vaccines with an attractive therapeutic combination of tumor-specific cell lysis together with patient-specific immune stimulation against cancer. The scientific community has continued to be impressed by the effectiveness and safety profile of these approaches which generates significant interest in this field. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural Oncolytic Virus Immunotherapy conference recognizes this active field and will bring together leading industry and academic leaders to discuss the critical steps needed to accelerate oncolytic virus immunotherapy into the clinic.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Multiplex platform engineering
  • The role of metabolism in oncolytic virus therapy
  • Understanding mechanism of different oncolytic viruses and their interactions with the immune system
  • Advances in clinical trials of different virus constructs
  • Virus delivery strategies
  • Determining level of tumor infection required to treat cancer
  • The role of carrier cells in triggering immune responses
  • Combination therapy
  • Overcoming manufacturing challenges
  • Regulatory perspectives in Europe
  • Adoption, reimbursement and commercial delivery strategies
