    Immuno-Oncology Webinar Series (#1 of 3)
     
    To kick off our three-part immuno-oncology webinar series, Dr. Cawley will highlight recent advancements driven by next-generation sequencing that may lead to a deeper understanding of the cancer immunity cycle. Through the use of complementary yet differentiated NGS assays and downstream analysis, these actionable insights may help pave the way for future precision immunotherapies.
     
    Learning Objectives:
    • Understand current challenges in precision immunotherapy today and impacts on immunotherapy translational research. 
    • Describe the advantages of Ion Torrent’s full immuno-oncology NGS portfolio to help decipher the immunity cycle.
