“What makes II-ON unique – and I've seen this firsthand – is the real-time interaction that our researchers and our clinicians have with the investigators and the network. People are picking up the phone, they're exchanging ideas, they're sharing data and discoveries in real time,” said Saurabh Saha, M.D., Ph.D., senior vice president of translational medicine at Bristol Myers Squibb. “When you consider that this community includes some of the leading oncology academics in the world, you really see that the II-ON is truly something special.”
Each year, researchers from the II-ON convene to share insights across oncology research and exchange learnings. In 2020, more than 100 members from II-ON academic institutions and Bristol Myers Squibb gathered in Philadelphia to attend the 9th Annual II-ON Scientific Symposium and discuss a wide variety of topics at the forefront of cancer research.
