Friends of Cancer Research (Friends) is proud to announce part two in our virtual meeting series, TMB Results: The Future Use of Complex Biomarkers, as we feature the presentation of new, innovative findings. Building on our July 14th symposium, this virtual meeting will promo new results and dive deeper into the Friends of Cancer Research Tumor Mutational Burden (TMB) Harmonization Project and its latest findings. The virtual meeting will include impactful discussions from leaders in cancer research and drug development as to how this project’s framework can act as a blueprint for the development of additional harmonization initiatives for complex biomarkers.
