Cancer immunotherapy has revolutionized the field of oncology by prolonging survival of patients with fatal cancers. The number of patients eligible for immune-based cancer treatments continues to skyrocket as these therapies position themselves as the first line for many cancer indications. Novel treatment combinations and newly identified druggable targets will further expand the role of immunotherapy in the treatment of cancer in the decades to come.

This CIVIS Summer School covers the most recent "Basics & Translational Approaches in Immuno­therapy of Cancer" by providing highly interactive lectures given by renowned cancer experts from the Universities of Aix-Marseille, Athens, Bucharest, Brussels, Rome, and Tübingen. 25 students in Human & Molecular Medicine as well as PhD Bachelors/Masters not only will be educated in a research field being highly important in current and future Health and Life sciences but on purpose also will have enough time and activities for strengthening their networking activities on the European level.

The course will be organised into readings by professors from various universities of the CIVIS Alliance, as well as students' round tables and poster sessions. A cultural side program will also be offered to discover the city and region of Tübingen.
