Workshop #1

Time: 9:00 AM-9:50 AM

Title: Understanding the heterogeneity, dynamics and spatial interactions in checkpoint blockade immunotherapy

Speakers: Joseph M. Beechem, Ph.D., Senior Vice President of Research and Development, NanoString Technologies and Alexandre Reuben, Ph.D.,Translational Immunologist, University of Montreal, Canada

Workshop #2

Time: 10:00 AM-10:50 AM

Title: Advancing translational research through digital detection of RNA signatures

Speakers: Lyndal Hesterberg, Ph.D. Senior Vice President, Research and Development, Oncocyte and Tony Ng, MD Ph.D. FRCPC, Consultant Sarcoma Pathologist, Vancouver General Hospital and BC Cancer Agency

Abstract: Digital detection of nucleic acids is rapidly empowering molecular characterization of challenging diseases such as cancer in ways not previously feasible. With its high specificity and reproducibility, the NanoString platform is capable of measuring RNA and DNA counts from highly degraded samples from small sample inputs for quantitation of features of interest. This session will explore how groups working to analyze blood-based mRNA signatures have utilized the nCounter® platform for development of assays for lung cancer and sarcoma.
