Oncology is a rapidly evolving marketplace with many biopharma companies seeking to develop and commercialize new breakthroughs in science and technology. In recent years, novel immuno-oncology therapeutics have unlocked new levels of durable efficacy and have reshaped therapeutic paradigms and markets landscapes accordingly. Additionally, new modalities such as cell and gene therapies are being applied to the oncology field, creating further complexities for biopharma players to navigate to remain competitive in the space. Peter Lang and Joosung Kim will share from their experience helping diverse biopharma stakeholders navigate these and other trends in the oncology space.
