Labroots: Precision Genomics and Precision Medicine for Immuno Oncology

Tumors often evade immune destruction by adapting and circumventing immune checkpoints to create resistance. This adaptive immunity can be reversed to stimulate the endogenous immune response. Extensive efforts using Immunotherapeutic approaches are currently being investigated for various cancer types to activate our immune system, making it able to recognize these cancer cells and destroy them. Due to the rapid expansion of genomic technologies, Precision Medicine in cancer is leading to exciting therapeutic capabilities. By a deeper understanding of the tumor genetics, patients can be prescribed more effective therapies or even avoid those that may be potentially adverse. This webinar will highlight the current renaissance in immunotherapy and discuss the expanding role of both genomics and transcriptomics in providing more personalized cancer care.
