Consortium for Pediatric Cellular Immunotherapy

Annual Meeting

Every fall, the CPCI holds an annual meeting attended by all who contribute to the Consortium, the External Advisory Board, and the NIH-NCATS Program Director. Slides from past meetings available here.


Occasionally the CPCI hosts a deeper discussion on a topic of special interest to the field. Slides from past symposia available here.
