About The 8th International Gamma-Delta T Cell Conference
The 8th International Gamma-Delta T Cell Conference will be held in Bordeaux, France from June 7-10, 2018. With the new companies targeting γδ T cells for cancer immunotherapy, including Incysus, it is an exciting time to come together. The goals of the conference are to bring together investigators from around the world working on γδ T cells to share and discuss unpublished results, refine existing and develop new paradigms, and identify directions for future research.
About Incysus Therapeutics, Inc.
Incysus is focused on delivering a novel off-the-shelf cell therapy for the treatment of cancer. By using genetically modified gamma-delta (γδ) T cells, our technology addresses the challenges that immunotherapies face targeting cold, low mutation cancers. Incysus’ immuno-oncology programs include activated and gene-modified adoptive cellular therapies that protect cells from chemotherapy and allow novel combinations to disrupt the tumor microenvironment and more selectively target cancer cells.
