What's Hot & What's Not in Immuno-Oncology Licensing

This whitepaper is based on two live web panels and discusses what’s exciting in immuno-oncology drug development versus what is not popular in licensing, and why. 

For the live events, biotech licensing and pharmaceutical business development consultant Linda Pullan was joined by four panelists who are business development experts from global pharmaceutical companies, a leading academic cancer center, and a top business development consulting firm.

If you are developing a cancer drug or working toward in- or out-licensing of a cancer drug, you will want to read these perspectives.
