SITC-NCI Webinar – Statistics and Machine Learning: Computational Science in Immuno-Oncology

When:  May 27, 2021 from 15:30 to 16:30 (ET)

In partnership with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) is pleased to launch a new series of nine computational immuno-oncology webinars. These free-to-attend digital events will help individual research labs to embrace the computational challenges of analyzing and integrating diverse assay data across the spectrum of immuno-oncology.

Organized by the SITC Big Data and Data Sharing Committee, these one-hour webinars will help participants obtain proper analytical understanding and concrete computational tools to tackle immuno-oncology questions and challenges at the interface between wet and dry labs. They will feature a moderator and a key faculty speaker leading instruction during the live event. For those who cannot attend live, the webinars will be made available in their entirety on the SITC Cancer Immunotherapy connectED online education platform.
