    Report WIN 2015 Symposium

    For an extensive meeting report by Dr. Richard L. Schilsky visit ecancer. Below is a brief summary report for your quick orientation.

    The WIN 2015 Symposium, a two-day symposium on precision cancer medicine offered by WIN Consortium, attracted delegates from 36 countries worldwide. The overarching theme this year was Novel targets, innovative agents, advanced technologies: A WINning strategy? This theme was elaborated in various plenary sessions with over 25 internationally renown speakers, a round table of global pharma and academic experts on Overcoming resistance through combined therapies, moderated by Richard L. Schilsky, ASCO’s Chief Medical Officer and WIN Consortium’s Scientific Advisory Board chair, and poster presentations. Many presentations (PDF) can be viewed on this website.

    Keynote lectures were presented by John Mendelsohn, Chairman, WIN Consortium, on The Era of Precision Cancer Medicine: A worldwide effort and challenge, James Allison, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, on Targeting immune mechanisms,Andrea Califano, Columbia University, on  A systems biology approach to precision cancer medicine, James Doroshow, U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) on A perspective on NCI’s strategy and trials, and Francesco Pignatti, European Medicines Agency (EMA) on The EMA adaptive pathways approach to improve timely access for patients to new medicines. 

    Richard L. Schilsky, ASCO’s Chief Medical Officer and Chairman of WIN Consortium’s SAB, moderated a lively round-table discussion of pharma and academic experts on Overcoming resistance through combined therapies.

    WIN Consortium encourages the submission of high-quality abstracts on precision cancer medicine by awarding best-poster awards to a few posters presented at the annual WIN Symposium.
