Cancer Center Research Program - 2023 Retreat
Dr. Pawel Kalinski M.D. Ph.D
The Upstate Cancer Center will host its annual retreat on Friday, May 19, 2023, and is pleased to announce our keynote speaker Dr. Pawel Kalinski M.D. Ph.D. of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Dr. Kalinski is the Jacob’s Endowed Chair of Immunology, Professor of Oncology, Chief of Translational Immuno-oncology, and Senior Vice President for Team Science.
His presentation is entitled Reprogramming Tumor Microenvironments to Sensitize "Cold" Tumors to Immunotherapy. Dr. Kalinski notes, “Our goal with this project is to convert cancers that are traditionally checkpoint-resistant into treatable, hot tumors so that more patients will be able to benefit from some of the most commonly prescribed immunotherapies. Based on our earlier studies both in the lab and in early-phase clinical trials, we have evidence that we can selectively promote entry of antitumor killer cells into tumor microenvironments and reduce local accumulation of suppressive cells in order to sensitize cold tumors to immune checkpoint-inhibition therapy.
The retreat will be held at Upstate Cancer Center in Conference Room 1076 A/B/C. Please R.S.V.P. to Kelly Kilpeck at email@example.com or (315) 464-6062.
