Program Registration Location & Arrival Accommodation Contact


The first International CRC1479 Symposium will take place on July 10 – 12, 2024, at the beautiful venue of the old University Building (KG1) in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany.

This 3-day symposium will cover the newest developments in the topic of “Oncogene driven immune escape”, following the concept, that oncogenic signaling can enable cancer cells to evade natural immune surveillance and immunotherapy. We are looking forward to an exciting symposium with presentations by leading experts of the field and short talks by successful early career scientists. The program also comprises a poster session. This Symposium will give you the opportunity to debate the current concepts of oncogenic signaling and immune escape mechanisms.

We cordially invite everyone to join us for this exciting symposium. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you here in the Black Forest!
