Here is what some people had to say about this year’s event.

“What’s making immuno-oncology so exciting is the durable response that we are seeing in a subset of patients. The Biomarkers and Immuno-Oncology World Congress brings together a diverse mix of industry experts to discuss the new and exciting data that is beginning to emerge around next-generation immuno-diagnostics.”

Colton B., Manager, Business Development at Biodesix

"We see novel epigenetic biomarkers becoming a powerful success-enabler of new immuno and combo therapies, so for us, the knowledge exchanged at the 2017 conference was incredibly valuable and established a great foundation for future meetings. Very much looking forward to 2018"

Jeb C., Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder, Genome Profiling (GenPro)

“truly a state-of-the-start assembly of speakers and subjects on immunotherapy; provides a diverse perspective of the immunotherapy landscape”

Susan S., Medical Oncologist, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Ctr.

“As a Clinical Trial Biomarker RD leader, I had great experience to participate the face-to-face sharing and discussing the key practical but challenging issues of immune oncology biomarkers such as PD-L1 in clinical trial, from analytical to clinical validation, as well as regulatory advisory comments”.

Bin Y., Exec Dir Biology & Clinical Biomarker, Shenogen Pharma Grp
