2018 Annual PRIMO Meeting Co-Chairs and Steering Committee

This past February, practitioners and leading oncologists from around the world gathered for the second annual Practical Recommendations in Immuno and Molecular Oncology (PRIMO) meeting, in order to learn and discuss the latest updates and trials in the field of oncology. Our Co-Chairs and Steering Committee worked diligently to create an expansive agenda focusing on the latest targeted and immuno therapies across multiple tumors, such as melanoma, head and neck cancer, lung cancer, gastrointestinal malignancies, hematologic malignancies, as well as the future of cancer prevention.
