Institut für Medizinische Immunologie, Organizer of the conference is the German Society for Immunology e.V. (DGfI). In her functions as head of the DGfI working group on tumor immunology and former director of the Institute of Medical Immunology, Prof. Dr. Seliger realizes this event at the Steintor-Varieté Halle (Saale).

The meeting „Tumor Immunology meets Oncology (TIMO)“ has established itself as an outstanding platform for exchange between scientists, clinicians and junior staff and as one of the leading European conferences in the field of tumor immunology. From 20-22 April 2023, it will take place for the 17th time at the Steintor Varieté Halle (Saale). With an increasing number of participants and a positive echo throughout, we are able to win not only highly recognized national but also international speakers – just to name a few brilliant speakers of the past years: Sylvia Adams (NYU Langone Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center New York, 2022), Shuji Ogino (Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Boston, 2019), Thomas Gajewski (University of Chicago, 2018), Alberto Mantovani (Instituto Clinico Humanitas Milan, 2017) and many others.

The symposium takes place over three days and begins with a workshop that enables young scientists to present their own data in a short lecture. The latest methods and techniques in the field of tumor treatment will also be presented. The accompanying poster exhibition facilitates discussion of further projects and the establishment of new cooperations. Following the workshop, we will award prizes for the three best lectures and posters. The scientific program will be rounded off with a networking evening allowing the discussion of projects and experiments in a relaxed atmosphere.

On the following two days, the established and renowned scientists will have their say. Topics will follow soon.

The meeting is made possible by the great commitment of the members of the Institute of Medical Immunology of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, the support of the German Society of Immunology (DGfI), the Society of Immunotherapy in Cancer (SITC) and its staff as well as the commitment of numerous sponsors. We are looking forward to another exciting event in 2023!
