PRIMO Preview: The 2nd Annual PRIMO Meeting

With a little less than a month to go until the 2nd Annual Practical Recommendations in Immuno and Molecular Oncology (PRIMO) Meeting, we’d like to give a look ahead of what you can expect to see in Maui.

The meeting kicks off with the opening reception. Surrounded by a Maui sunset with refreshing, mild Hawaiian air, you’re given the perfect opportunity to acclimate yourself with PRIMO. Talk with your peers, meet the faculty, and enjoy some great food to receive our warmest of welcomes to the 2017 meeting.

Early the next day, at 7:45 AM to be precise, the PRIMO sessions officially begin. Lead by Co-Chairs Julie Brahmer and Julie Vose, day one of the 2nd Annual PRIMO Meeting is set to feature talks covering melanoma, lung cancer, head and neck cancer, as well as gastrointestinal malignancies. Day one ends mid-afternoon with a great summary of the day’s key learnings.

Day two sessions again begin bright and early the next morning, with a special introduction by Charles Balch. Topics covered include hematologic and genitourinary malignancies, with plenty of room for vivacious conversation. Again, day two sessions will end mid-afternoon with another summary of key learnings.

The final day of sessions starts a half hour earlier than normal, but that simply means there is more time to enjoy the Maui sunrise. Presentations will be related to breast cancer and practical considerations, which is a session dedicated to the budding relationship between healthcare and technology, obstacles faced by the community, and more. These talks are followed up by a final summary and discussion of the day’s key learnings, along with the major take-aways from the entire meeting.

On February 12th, a little after noon, you will be on your way with your new knowledge, putting the final fold into a successful 2nd Annual PRIMO Meeting.
