Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 2nd Annual

Emerging Immune Modulation Strategies

Assays and Techniques for Identifying, Understanding, and Predicting Immune Responses

September 25, 2023


The coronavirus pandemic ignited interest in learning more about immune responses to infections, their downstream effects, and how they can be modulated. It also gave rise to increased awareness of the role of immunity in diseases like cancer, neurodegeneration, fibrosis, autoimmune disorders, and more. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s symposium on Emerging Immune Modulation Strategies highlights new assays, technologies, and predictive models being used to understand and target immune pathways and responses for drug discovery and therapy.


Who should attend: Scientist in Immunology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Discovery Biology, Target Discovery, Medicinal Chemistry, Discovery Chemistry, Lead Discovery, Target Identification and Validation, Chemical Biology, Proteomics, Genomics, Assay Development, and Computational and Molecular Screening.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Techniques for studying immune responses in the brain and the tumor microenvironment
  • Tools for identifying new targets and drug candidates for immune modulation
  • Single cell RNA sequencing and spatial biology technologies for studying immune responses
  • High-throughput phenotypic and functional assays for monitoring immune-related changes
  • Functional genomics and proteomics screening to identify novel targets for immune modulation
  • Use of artificial intelligence and machine learning for immunology predictions
  • Imaging and cell-based assays for studying cellular interactions and cross-talk
  • Model organisms for studying innate-immune system and lineage-specific adaptations
  • Synthetic biology for immune therapy
  • Understanding the role of the microbiome in immune modulation


The deadline for priority consideration is March 17, 2023.


All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
