Exploit Oncolytic Viruses through Optimized Pre-Clinical Translation,
Improved Delivery Beyond IV Carrier Cells & Enhanced Clinical Grade Manufacturing to Successfully, Selectively & Effectively Eliminate Cancer

Welcome to the 8th Oncolytic Virotherapy Summit: Engineering Oncolytic Viruses Towards Revolutionary Anti-Cancer Immunotherapies

Recent years have seen highly promising and rapid advances in the pre-clinical development and clinical evolution of oncolytic virotherapies. They are increasingly being recognised as a therapy with huge potential to change the landscape for cancer immunotherapy. In the past 3 months alone, we have witnessed 20 new drugs entering into pre-clinical and clinical phases, and exciting FDA Fast Track Designation for Candel Therapeutics OV candidate – this community continues to maximize the impact of these hopeful therapies.
