People x Biology x Data =
Solving Cancer with Immunotherapy

Dive into the intersection of technology and healthcare at the heart of cancer research. A recent event hosted by Viewstream, in partnership with the Cancer Research Institute (CRI), unveiled the transformative potential of data science in the battle against cancer.

Held at The Modernist Club in San Francisco, “People x Biology x Data = Solving Cancer with Immunotherapy” was more than just a gathering—it was a leap forward in understanding how immunotherapy, powered by machine learning, AI, and big data, is reshaping the fight against this disease.

The event highlighted the spirit of innovation and was seen as a beacon of hope, illuminating the remarkable strides being made in the field of cancer immunotherapy through the lens of cutting-edge technology and medical breakthroughs.

Empowering Innovations and Harnessing the Power of Data

John Assalian, the CEO of Viewstream, opened the event by highlighting the essence of collaboration and the relentless pursuit of a world immune to cancer. The heart of the discussion was a panel of CRI’s Lloyd J. Old STAR grantees, including Alexander Marson, MD, PhD; Ansu Satpathy, MD, PhD; and Matt Spitzer, PhD. These luminaries delved into the potent combination of bioinformatics in advancing personalized immunotherapies.
