Personalis, Inc. (Nasdaq: PSNL), a leader in advanced genomics for cancer, today announced that the company will present at Advances in Immuno-Oncology Congress USA 2019 in San Diego on October 8th at 2:50 PM PDT.
The presentation, titled “Advancing Precision Oncology Biomarker Discovery with a Multidimensional Immunogenomics Platform,” will describe the Personalis universal cancer immunogenomics platform, ImmunoID NeXT™. In addition to an overview, the presentation will cover preliminary data from an ongoing study in which this platform is being used to evaluate IO-related biomarkers and potential tumor escape mechanisms in a cohort of melanoma patients treated with anti-PD-1 therapy.
ImmunoID NeXT™ is the first platform to enable comprehensive analysis of both a tumor and its immune microenvironment from a single sample. The platform can be used to investigate the key tumor- and immune-related areas of cancer biology, consolidating multiple oncology biomarker assays into one. This maximizes the biological information that can be generated from a precious tumor specimen.
The presentation will be delivered by Kedar Hastak, Ph.D., Field Application Scientist.
