“Cancer Epigenetics and Epitranscriptomics; From Knowledge to Applications” Presented by Professor Manel Esteller, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Esteller is the Director of the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC), Chairman of Genetics in the School of Medicine of the University of Barcelona, and an ICREA Research Professor. His current research is devoted to the establishment of the epigenome and epitranscriptome maps of normal and transformed cells, the study of the interactions between epigenetic modifications and non-coding RNAs, and the development of new epigenetic drugs for cancer therapy.

“Profiling human tumor-specific T cell responses for cancer biomarker discovery” Presented by Evan Newell, Ph.D. Professor Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division, Fred Hutch Joint Professor, Herbold Computational Biology Program Public Health Sciences Division, Fred Hutch Member Immunotherapy Integrated Research Center (IIRC), Fred Hutch & Pathogen-Associated Malignancies Integrated Research Center (PAM IRC), Fred Hutch Learn more about Dr. Newell... Dr. Evan Newell is an immunologist who develops and employs new technologies for accurately identifying specific biological signatures of human health and disease, including cancer and infectious diseases. He and his team work with blood and tissue samples, using mass cytometry and other single-cell analysis methods to better understand how the specificities of immune T cells influence their roles in clinically productive responses against pathogens or cancers.
