It is our pleasure to invite you to the First International Conference on Lymphocyte Engineering (ICLE 2018), set to take place in Madrid, on 13-15 September 2018.
Great strides have been made in recent years in the engineering of lymphocytes for the treatment of cancer, autoimmune diseases, pathogenic diseases and primary immune deficiencies. Combining gene therapy, cell therapy and immune therapy, the emerging field of lymphocyte engineering employs cutting edge technologies of viral and non-viral vectorology, genome editing and protein design as well as advanced clinical protocols for cell harvest, expansion and re-infusion. With groundbreaking clinical success leading to FDA approved products and with vibrant, exponentially growing research, lymphocyte engineering is the wave of the future.
Still, the challenges are formidable and the stakes are high. Realizing the full promise of lymphocyte engineering will require the combined efforts of a dedicated community. ICLE 2018 will facilitate the sharing of data and ideas, promote collaborations, and address common challenges to advance clinical translation. It will provide an effective environment for active learning, discussions of real-world case studies and for networking between like-minded peers.
Whether you are a scientist, clinical researcher, part of a start-up or an established industry company, ICLE 2018 is your opportunity to network and discuss immuno-gene therapy with those as excited and passionate about this innovative treatment modality.
See you in Madrid!
On behalf of the Advisory Board,
President of the Israeli Society for Gene and Cell Therapy (ISGCT),
ICLE conference chair,
Senior lecturer at Tel-Aviv University
