Illumina Immuno-Oncology Symposium

Recent advances in our understanding of how the immune system interacts with and fights cancer have revolutionized cancer research and treatment.

The power of genomics in Immuno-Oncology is just starting to be comprehended and applied to this dynamic space. Immune cell repertoire sequencing, RNA-Seq and expression analysis of the tumor microenvironment, and the detection and prediction of immune stimulatory neoantigens are all examples of how genomics can help to answer many of the unknown questions that still exist. 

Please join us for a unique opportunity where we will bring together speakers from across the academic, clinical, and biotechnology spectrum to discuss how they are using next-generation sequencing in this exciting space. Whether you are interested in advancing your research, bringing game-changing therapies to market, or partnering to maximize the effectiveness of translational studies, this event aims to provide the research community with insights and ideas to further our understanding of how the immune system can be optimized to fight cancer.

Speakers Include: 

  • Aude Chapuis, MD, Assistant Member, Clinical Research Division, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine, Division of Medical Oncology, University Of Washington, Attending Physician, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance
  • Katherine Connor, PhD, Scientist - Receptor Discovery, Juno Therapeutics
  • Ilan “Lanny” Kirsch, MD, Senior Vice President, Translational Medicine, Adaptive Biotechnologies
  • Brian Piening, PhD, Associate Director Clinical Genomics, Providence Portland Medical Center, Providence Health and Services

There is no charge to attend this event. However, registration is required.
