    Immuno-Oncology Webinar Series (#2 of 3)
     
    This webinar will review recent advancements in the application of next-generation sequencing of T cell receptor beta (TCRB) chain repertoires towards predictive and mechanistic biomarker discovery for cancer immunotherapy. Dr. Looney will focus on immunotherapy biomarker applications of a long-amplicon TCRB sequencing assay which provides coverage of the CDR1, 2 and 3 regions of the rearranged TCRB chain. He will highlight recent data from individuals receiving checkpoint blockade immunotherapy for cancer which suggest that long-amplicon TCRB repertoire sequencing of pre-treatment peripheral blood may be used to identify predictive biomarkers for immune-mediated adverse events and objective clinical response.
     
    Learning Objectives:
    • Understand current applications of T cell receptor sequencing to immunotherapy translational research.
    • Describe the advantages of long-amplicon TCRB sequencing via Ion Torrent for immunotherapy biomarker discovery from peripheral blood.
