Immunotherapy holds great promise, but it only works in a subset of cancer patients. To predict which patients will respond positively to certain treatments and track their progress, researchers search for predictive and prognostic immuno-oncology biomarkers.
In this virtual symposium brought to you by The Scientist, an expert panel will discuss their efforts to identify new biomarkers for various cancers, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). They will also highlight the cutting-edge technologies they use to develop clinical applications for these biomarkers.
