Interactive Breakout Discussion Groups with Continental Breakfast

This session features various discussion groups that are led by a moderator/s who ensures focused conversations around the key issues listed. Attendees choose to join a specific group and the small, informal setting facilitates sharing of ideas and active networking. Continental breakfast is available for all participants.

Topic: Small Molecule Targeting of IDO1 and TDO for Cancer Immunotherapy

Moderator: Rogier Buijsman, Ph.D., Head, Chemistry, Netherlands Translational Research Center B.V. (NTRC)

  • Overcoming challenges of current IDO1 inhibitors lacking selectivity over TDO and having suboptimal drug-like properties
  • Advances in IDO1 and TDO inhibitor screening
  • Is selective IDO1 or TDO inhibitors is required, or a dual IDO1/TDO inhibitor is preferred to obtain optimal efficacy and safety in the clinic?

Topic: Strategies for Developing Bispecific Antibodies for Cancer Immunotherapy

Moderator: Krzysztof Masternak, Ph.D., Head, Biology, Therapeutic Antibody Discovery, Novimmune

  • Considerations for efficacy in vitro and in vivo: selectivity for tumor cells, ADCP, ADCC, in vivo efficacy (xenograft models)
  • Insights into mechanisms of action
  • Safety considerations: binding selectivity, PK and tox studies

Topic: Combining Standard Antiangiogenic Therapy with Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors

Moderator: Dan Duda, D.M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor, Steele Laboratories for Tumor Biology, Department of Radiation Oncology, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School

  • Will checkpoint combination with chemotherapy or other targeted agents prove to have too many toxicity issues?
  • How do we minimize overlapping toxic effects of radiation and immunotherapy?
  • How to optimize the sequencing of these two treatment modalities?

SMALL MOLECULE INHIBITORS AS SINGLE AND CHECKPOINT COMBINATION AGENTS

Selective Small Molecule Inhibitors of IDO1 and TDO for Cancer Immunotherapy
Rogier Buijsman, Ph.D., Head, Chemistry, Netherlands Translational Research Center B.V. (NTRC)
