SYMPOSIUM: Oncology Drug Discovery, Translating from Target to Patient

Boston MA, May 4 2017 - Boston Museum of Science

Museum of Science, BostonThis year our annual Oncology Drug Discovery Boston symposium focuses on the efficient translation of anticancer agents from bench to bedside.

This highly dynamic field has already seen tremendous change with the acceptance of key translational tools, such as patient-derived xenografts (PDX), and now needs further evolution to continue the advancement of immunotherapeutics.

The symposium will bring together Oncology R&D and Preclinical teams from industry, academia, and medical research to facilitate cross discipline discussions on current techniques, and how to move forward with future approaches.

Discussion Topics Include:

  • How key translational oncology tools such as PDX models can be used to predict therapeutic response and inform on clinical trial strategies

  • How to expedite the development of novel targeted agents

  • The evolving role of the tumor microenvironment on tumor growth and drug response, and how to use it to your advantage
