Ning Wang talks about “Single cell sequencing: a powerful approach to profile tumor microenvironment” at Advance Genetic Sequencing Virtual Conference 2021

Ning is a bioinformatics scientist at Arcus Biosciences, where he is responsible for drug discovery, target identification, and indication prioritization in multiple immune-oncology drug programs. Notably, Ning pioneered the 3D organoids based drug response prediction technology, which largely facilitated cancer model selection. During his PhD, he studied with Professor Alexander Hoffmann at UCLA, where he built up computational framework to identify synergy between key immune response signaling pathways in macrophage. Ning holds a PhD in Bioinformatics from UCLA. Marketsandmarkets took this opportunity to pick his brains on the newfound developments…
