Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 2nd Annual

Emerging Targets for Oncology and Beyond

Hitting the Bullseye

May 16-17, 2023


Finding the right target for the disease is the holy grail of drug discovery and development. However, this seemingly simple task is complex and fraught with challenges. While many of the popular targets have already been used to create first-in-class biotherapeutics, the industry is in need of more and better targets that will be successful when advancing from preclinical to clinical development. The Emerging Targets for Oncology and Beyond conference invites speakers to present their development of therapeutic candidates against these emerging or new-again targets, and to share their perspectives on the potential of these trendy targets.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Target Discovery & Validation


  • (Re-)Emerging Targets for Solid Tumors
    • Glypicans
    • B7-H3
    • B7-H4
    • Mesothelin
    • MUC1
    • ROR1
    • MAGE-A1
    • GD2


  • Hot Targets for the Tumor Microenvironment
    • Treg Cells
    • MDSCs
    • NK-T cells
    • Gamma Delta T cells
    • Immunosuppresive monocytes


  • Emerging/Hot Targets for Non-Oncology Indications
    • Infectious and Viral diseases
    • Inflammatory diseases
    • Neurological diseases


The deadline for priority consideration is October 21, 2022.


All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
