Please join us for the Exhibitor Spotlight Theater session presented by Dr. Richard Williams Managing Director and Head of Oncology Programs, WuXi NextCODE, and Dr. Qunsheng Ji VP and Head of Oncology & Immunology, WuXi AppTec.
Qunsheng Ji, MD, PhD
VP & Head of Oncology & Immunology, WuXi AppTec
Despite significant clinical advancements in a broad-range of tumor types, a majority of patients don’t respond to immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies such as anti-PD-1 and anti-PD-L1. This presentation will review potentially useful emerging technologies for IO drug discovery including in vivo CRISPR screen, preclinical assays & disease models and immune-profiling.
