He will discuss ongoing efforts to identify biomarkers for drug efficacy in a panel of putative drugs for triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). Soellner and his colleagues are currently testing and refining biomarkers in TNBC for drug efficacy using a panel of ~400 investigational drugs, then using the discovered biomarkers to identify optimal drug combinations.

The session will include refreshments from Zingerman’s and time allocated for discussion.
