PICI Network Researchers Featured at Spotlight on Immuno-Oncology Conference

Six members of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy (PICI) Network will present at the 2023 Spotlight on Immuno-Oncology conference, Aug. 1 and 2 in Seattle and online.

Hosted by the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT), the event will focus on novel CAR designs and approaches beyond B-cell malignancies, genome and epigenome editing, direct in vivo delivery for cancer immunotherapy, and other topics.

The six PICI Network presenters, in order of their presentations, are:

Below are details about their presentations. All times are Pacific Daylight Time. Livestream and on-demand video options also are available.
