Tuesday 12 March, 17:45-18:45
"How to introduce precision medicine principles to immuno-oncology"
One of the most important challenges in the field of immune-oncology is the identification of biomarkers to predict response to immunotherapy. This is crucial to select the patients to be treated with compounds designed to engage the immune system against tumours. The discussion will focus on this important point and will deal with some of the present controversies in the field. The session will also provide an overview of how to move forward in the future leading to discussions about how to identify novel biomarkers and the limitations (and how to circumvent them) of the present preclinical models.
The discussion will be led by Joan Seoane, Zlatko Trajanosky and George Coukos, and participants are invited to contribute to the conversation.
Monday 11 March, 16:40-16:50
Tuesday 12 March, 12:05-12:15
Six high-scoring abstracts will be selected to give Poster Spotlight presentations. These three minute 'flash talks' will be presented in the lecture theatre. All participants are invited to join in with these informal sessions.
Monday 11 March, 19:30-21:00
Tuesday 12 March, 15:00-16:30
There are two dedicated Poster Discussion Sessions in the programme. At these times, the presenters for that session are asked to stand by their posters to discuss their work with other participants and invited speakers. As well as the dedicated sessions on Monday and Tuesday, there will also be additional poster viewing opportunities at the beginning of each day where posters can be freely browsed.
For participants who have purchased a ticket only.
The conference dinner is an excellent opportunity for participants and speakers to get to know each other in a relaxed and informal environment. The dinner will take place at El Principal del Eixample and will consist of three courses along with wine and coffee.
