Waltham, Mass —September 20, 2023

BostonGene, a leading provider of AI-based molecular and immune profiling solutions, announced today that it will participate in the 82nd Annual Meeting of the Japanese Cancer Association (JCA). The event, to be held at Pacific Convention Plaza Yokohama from September 21 – September 23, focuses on all aspects of cancer research, including basic, clinical and translational research into the etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.  BostonGene will also exhibit in booth 56.

BostonGene will deliver presentations demonstrating the integration of our innovative solutions encompassing multiple AI-based molecular and immune profiling techniques that analyze the tumor, tumor microenvironment, and immune system to comprehensively understand each patient’s disease.

"We look forward to presenting our emerging technologies and novel insights into the molecular underpinnings of cancer at the upcoming Annual Meeting of the Japanese Cancer Association," said Nathan Fowler, MD, Chief Medical Officer at BostonGene. "These presentations reflect our intense focus on deep molecular and immune profiling, novel technologies, and analytics to positively impact patient care.”
