WORKSHOP TRACK: COMPANION DIAGNOSTICS AND CLINICAL BIOMARKERS
Optimizing TMB Use in Cancer Research and Care: The Friends of Cancer Research TMB Harmonization Effort
Tuesday, March 12th ~ 12:10 - 12:25 pm
Optimizing TMB Use in Cancer Research and Care: The Friends of Cancer Research TMB Harmonization Effort Abstract: Harmonization of methods to quantify TMB will facilitate robust biomarker development and optimize clinical utilization and treatment decision-making. Friends aims to better understand the impact of assay variation on clinical outcomes, align standards, and define best practices for TMB assessment.
Featured Speaker: Mark Stewart, Friends of Cancer Research
Mark leads Friends’ research and policy agenda and oversees research projects. He also establishes partnerships to develop policy proposals and consensus-driven solutions, and accelerate drug development. Mark received his PhD in cancer biology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
WORKSHOP TRACK: CIRCULATING CELL-FREE DNA
Building and Implementing Liquid Biopsy Assays with Industry’s Most Patient-Like Reference Standards
Thursday, March 14th ~ 10:00 - 10:15 am
To ensure their clinical utility, NGS-based liquid biopsy assays must achieve exquisite sensitivity. We will discuss how sustainable, patient-like, highly-multiplexed ctDNA standards help laboratories and NGS assay developers save time while achieving and validating sensitivity to as low as AF0.1%.
