NTRC will present two scientific posters at the AACR Annual Meeting 2018, to be held from April 14th to 18th in Chicago. The first poster relates to Arginase, a promising target in the field of cancer immunotherapy. The poster describes a novel high-throughput assay technology that was used to screen for small molecule inhibitors of Arginase I. The screen was performed in collaboration with the Pivot Park Screening Centre.

The second poster relates to targeted therapies and drug response biomarkers. The poster presents the biochemical kinase assay and cell panel profiling data of all kinase inhibitors approved for clinical use. GeneNominator™ gene expression analysis revealed novel drug response biomarkers for BTK and CDK4/6 inhibitors, which will be presented in case studies.

Furthermore, representatives of NTRC will gladly welcome you at booth #1055 in the Exhibition Hall.
