iwCAR-T 2022

28 Apr–01 May 2022 | Tampa, FL / Online

The 4th International Workshop on CAR-T (iwCAR-T) took place on 28 April – 1 May 2022 in Tampa, FL, with VJHemOnc & VJOncology as official media partners. The workshop is a high-level discussion forum for research leaders in the field of CAR-T to share their perspectives on how to place this evolving understanding in a clinical context and thereby optimize clinical care. This year, a full day was dedicated to CAR-T therapy for solid cancers.
