Description

This Annals volume includes invited short reviews on topics presented at the 7th International Cancer Vaccine Symposium “Renaissance of Cancer Immunotherapy”, held September 9-11, 2012 in Florence, Italy.  The papers cover the latest progress in basic immunology research and its translation to cancer patients.  The meeting and papers pay tribute to the successes in the last few years that have led to the approval of new immunotherapies and the awarding of the Nobel Prize in medicine to three immunologists.  The symposium is dedicated to one of these recipients, Dr. Ralph Steinman who discovered dendritic cells, immune cells that are vital in immune responses and immunotherapies for cancer.
