Separately, Ontada, McKesson’s oncology real-world data and evidence, clinical education, and provider technology business, is also presenting a poster at the conference.

“We look forward to discussing meaningful advancements in blood cancer treatments, CAR T-Cell Therapy, immune effector cell and other novel therapies that are changing the treatment landscape for many patients,” said Howard A. “Skip” Burris, III, MD, President, SCRI. “SCRI and USOR researchers have been collaborating on pivotal research studies for years, and we are excited to see the greater impact we can make together as one team.”
