Immunotherapy, Bioinformatics and Devices
• If targeted therapies and personalized medicine revolutionized cancer treatment in the last decade, will Immunotherapy be the next big hope during the coming decade?
• Have we finally got a handle on big data and where is Bioinformatics headed?
• Ditto with regard to Biomarkers and Devices?

Advances in cancer immunotherapy have generated enthusiasm across all fields of oncology. Complimentary/companion diagnostics along with predictive biomarkers are integral to improving patient outcome. In addition, emphasis on personalized medicine and targeted therapies, diagnostics and biomarkers are playing an increasingly important role in drug development. Early adoption of bioinformatics tools can help advance therapeutic candidates.
