Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology

Dr Newell is co-organizer and speaker at the Keystone Symposia: Single Cell Omics

Single cell omics is a new frontier in biology where genome-wide data is captured at the resolution of individual cells. Single cell high-throughput technologies are being developed in the areas of imaging, mass spectrometry and DNA- and RNA-sequencing, and combinations thereof. In addition, the corresponding software and visualization tools are an active field of research. Single cell omics has important implications for all areas of development, differentiation and cellular decision-making because these can now be studied at unprecedented resolution. Single cell omics methods are also shedding new light on immunity and cancer, due to the heterogeneous cell populations involved in both areas of biology. Therefore, these approaches are revolutionizing basic biology, our understanding of disease and technologies involved in translation to medicine. Since the field is in its infancy and there are few meetings dedicated to this topic, there is an unmet need in the community. This conference enables scientists in the field to congregate and exchange ideas and information about new methods and biological insights. A conference such as this will be of continuing importance until single cell omics technologies become commonplace and integrated into all areas of biology.

Equally, single cell omics methods are shedding new light on immunity and cancer, due to the heterogeneous cell populations involved in both areas of biology. Therefore, these approaches are revolutionizing both basic biology as well as our understanding of disease, and technologies involved in translation to medicine. Since the field is in its infancy, and there are few meetings dedicated to this topic, there is a huge unmet need in the community to congregate and exchange ideas and information about new methods and the biological insights gained. A meeting such as this will be of continuing importance until single cell omics technologies become commonplace and established, and integrated into all areas of biology.

Dr Newell’s presentation at Keystone Symposia: Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy

The fields of cancer immunology and immunotherapy continue to make great strides in providing both a comprehensive understanding of the basic mechanisms underlying tumor-immune system interactions and applying this knowledge to the development of effective immune-based cancer therapies. This Keystone Symposia meeting is organized to highlight recent insights into the complex roles of immune components and pathways in controlling or alternatively promoting cancer and to showcase recent uses of cancer vaccines, checkpoint blocking strategies, adoptive cell therapies and cellular engineering approaches, either as mono- or combinatorial therapies, that have resulted in durable, effective and safe therapeutic responses to an increasing number of cancer patients. Part of the meeting will also focus on new, developing technologies that are likely to expand our capacity to monitor the effects of cancer immunotherapy with a precision, refinement and at a level that has not been possible in the past.
