Thousands of scientists from across the world have joined world-class speakers and leading manufacturers online to explore the major new developments in cancer and immunology research. 

From technological innovations to novel techniques and top resources to advance your work, the successful Virtual Cancer and Immunology Research Summit 2021 covered hot topics ranging from immunology and COVID-19, CAR T-cell therapy and immunotherapy to genomic research and CRISPR technology, cancer diagnostics, cancer imaging and more.

First launched a year ago, the SelectScience® Virtual Summits offer a crucial platform for the science industry to continue to connect at this critical time, featuring eminent speakers, technology workshops, interactive booths from leading brands and dedicated networking sessions.

Explaining the significance of the events, Summit speaker Dr. Kirk McManus, University of Manitoba, said: “I believe it is incredibly important, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, to continue to present and share our team’s research findings with the global research community, stakeholders and in particular, the general public. The SelectScience virtual conference provides an outstanding platform in which to engage a diverse audience and receive questions and feedback that will help shape our future cancer research efforts.”
