Preclinical Models and Genomics-Driven Target Identification to Enable Oncology and Immuno-Oncology Drug Discovery

March 31, 3:30pm – 4:30pm | Theater B
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.

Preclinical Models to Enable Immuno-Oncology Drug Discovery

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.

Genomics-Driven Target Discovery

Richard Williams, MBBS, PhD
Managing Director, Head of Oncology Programs, WuXi NextCODE 

At WuXi NextCODE, to drive next generation cancer drug target discovery, we leverage SeqPlus, our proprietary method for very even WGS from archival FFPE specimens, integrate massive WGS, RNA-transcriptome, DNA-methylation datasets and apply advanced AI to large collections of archival FFPE tissue specimens with phenotypic and outcomes data.
