PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Join us to test and expand your knowledge on the increasingly important role of biomarkers in immuno-oncology. Three leading experts will challenge you with quiz questions that lay the basis for in-depth discussions supported by slide presentations. In this interactive learning experience we will examine the tumor microenvironment and address the evidence base and the future potential of current and emerging biomarkers in guiding treatment decisions and in predicting the response to immuno-oncology therapeutics. You will also learn about the role and importance of next-generation sequencing for the evaluation of novel immune biomarkers and for your daily clinical practice.

AGENDA

The scientific session will run from 7:00 to 8:30 PM and will include the following presentations:
Welcome and introduction
