This promises to be an outstanding learning and networking opportunity for trainees, PIs, clinicians, and industry researchers. The meeting will follow the usual format, with talks interspersed with speed poster sessions and poster receptions. 

Special opportunity for trainees:

As part of the celebration for the Society of Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) 30th anniversary, a special satellite workshop will be hosted by the World Immune Therapy Council (WIC). This WIC day will highlight young trainees from the member organizations from around the world, which includes the CCIC. This year during the CCIC meeting, we will select the trainee that will represent Canada in this global showcase for Immune Therapy. This trainee will demonstrate outstanding potential as a rising star in Immunology and Immunotherapy and will be chosen based on their poster and speed poster presentations.
