Tumour Immunology - An overview

The main purpose of the Tumour Immunology SIG is to present the latest developing advances in both basic and applied tumour immunology. A tumour immunology workshop is organised each year which runs in conjunction with the Australian Society of Immunology main meeting. The workshop is usually held the day prior to the start of the ASI meeting. The workshop generally attracts ~100 delegates each year and is attended by both eminent international and national scientists in the tumour immunology field. A highlight of the meeting is the Gordon Ada lecture which serves to commemorate his enormous contribution to immunology. The workshop is of general interest to both fundamental and cancer immunologists, as well as clinician researchers. The workshop is organised each year by representatives of the organizing committee for the main ASI meeting.
