Presenter: Dr. Benjamin Izar, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor, Columbia University Irving Medical Center/New York Presbyterian

Talk title: “From Sequence to Mechanisms and Therapies”

Dr. Benjamin Izar is the Vivian and Seymour Milstein Family assistant professor at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, Department of Medicine, Division of Hematology and Oncology. His research program leverages large-scale single-cell genomics studies and functional screens to dissect and overcome mechanisms of cancer immune evasion. Recent work has investigated the intersection of cancer genomics, metastatic progression, and immunobiology in melanoma and non-small cell lung cancer. These studies informed novel drug targets to disrupt immunosuppressive cues and enable a new generation of cellular immunotherapies.
