The Cancer Summit Research Programme (SRP) is headed by Professor Chng Wee Joo, of the Department of Haematology-Oncology at the National Cancer Institute, Singapore. The multi-disciplinary team includes oncologists, immunologists and physiologists, as well as clinical trial experts.

The programme focuses on cancer immunotherapy (cell-based, antibodies, and vaccines), one of the most promising avenues for cancer treatment today. By discovering new targets for cancer immunotherapy, finding ways to enhance the immune response, and developing and testing new therapies in clinical trials, the programme aims to make meaningful breakthroughs in this exciting new field.
