EFIS Symposium "Tumor immunology escape and resistance (TIMER)"


Dear all,

our symposium „Tumor immune escape and resistance (TIMER)“ of the EFIS-IL Study Group is approaching (8th to the 9th of October 2019). We would like to remind you of that event, which will take place at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Steintor-Campus, Adam-Kuckhoff-Str. 35, 06108 Halle, Lecture Hall 1 starting from 9 a.m. at the 8th of October.

There are still 2 spaces left for short talks of young professionals and we would like to encourage you to submit your abstracts to us (max. 1 page, 12 ppt, Arial). Based on your abstract, we will choose who will give a short talk (15 minutes talk, 5 minutes discussion). The last deadline for submitting abstracts is the 20th of September 2019 in order to integrate these chosen talks into the official program. After that deadline we will publish the official program for the symposium.

Please apply for your participation until the 27th of September 2019 at the latest.

We are looking forward to appearing in large numbers in Halle!

Kind regards,

Maria Heise 

Research Secretary Prof. Dr. Barbara Seliger


In cooperation with the European Federation of Immunological Societies (EFIS) and the working group of Tumor Immunology of the German Society of Immunology, we will perform the small international symposium on „Immune escape and immune resistance“ in cooperation with Lorenzo Galluzzi (Weill Cornell Medical College, New York) and Ofer Mandelboim (Hadassah University, Jerusalem). This will be the first symposium of a series, which will take place from the 8th to the 9th of October 2019 in Halle (Saale), while the second symposium will be held at the Hadassah University in Jerusalem (2020) and the third one in 2021 at Inserm in Paris.

This symposium will focus on the one hand on the characterization of the underlying molecular mechanisms of immune escape of tumors, which will be at the level of tumor cells, the (tumor) microenvironment, the microbiome as well as peripheral immune cells, while on the other hand the development of resistances against (immuno)therapies will be discussed. Both topics have recently become important due to the limited response of diverse immunotherapies. Therefore, novel results from basic research on immune escape and resistances as well as results from clinical (immuno)therapeutic trials and their mechanisms leading to limited responses will be discussed during these both days.

The event will take place at the Martin Luther University / “Steintor Campus” / Adam-Kuckhoff-Straße 35, 06108 Halle (Saale)/ Lecture Hall I (see attachment and this link: ). We scheduled the program for the two days between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

You are very welcome to register via the registration form or via email: 

Also interested young professionals are welcome to submit their abstracts to us regarding a small talk between the main speakers (“proffered papers”). Please let us know until the 31st of August at the latest. Thank you. We are looking forward to seeing you in October!
