    Biography
      Shidong Jia, MD, PhD, is the Founder and CEO of Predicine. Prior to founding Predicine, Shidong spearheaded the oncology biomarker strategies and drug & diagnostics co-development at Genentech. His previous work identified p110beta as novel drug target for PTEN-deficient tumors, a finding that laid the foundation for clinical development and testing of p110beta inhibitors in cancers. He previously held various senior research positions focusing on translational and clinical cancer research at Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research and Harvard University. Shidong was awarded the P.A.R.T. Investigatorship Award from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Shidong holds a MD and PhD from Harbin Medical University and Peking Union Medical College, and completed postdoctoral training at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute - Harvard University.

    Abstract

    Determining which patients would derive clinical benefit from immunotherapy is a compelling clinical question. Biomarkers have been shown to predict therapy outcome in various types of cancer patients. This talk will focus on the development and clinical applications of circulating RNA and DNA-based liquid biopsy tests in biomarker-driven clinical trials.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Learn about the latest development of predictive and prognostic biomarkers, the clinical utility of biomarkers in clinical studies, and their potential as companion diagnostics
    2. The gap between biomarkers and precision medicine (targeted therapy, immuno-oncology, and cell therapy)
