Liquid-biopsy and tissue-biopsy for personalized cancer genomics

  • What are the major challenges in personalized cancer genomics in therapeutic target selection and efficacy monitoring in precision medicine?
  • What technological advancements have helped us interrogate these challenges with biopsies from complimentary sources?
  • How can we validate the finding from liquid biopsy to support clinical trial?
  • What can we learn from liquid and tissue biopsy to make informed decision?

Director of Bioinformatics, Amplify-Bio

Sam joined Amplify-Bio recently as director of bioinformatics, bringing years of experience in cancer genomics in various biopharmaceutical companies. Previously at PACT Pharma, Sam built computational biology team, led the bioinformatics efforts in IND filing and clinical trial in developing personalized TCR-T cell therapy. Prior to PACT, Sam held various positions with increasing responsibilities at Amgen where he contributed to drug discovery and target identification across multiple therapeutic areas in immunoncology and metabolic disorders.
