ImmunoGenex to hold medical lecture series for English-speaking public in Tokyo


ImmunoGenex will be launching in December a medical lecture series for the general English-speaking public, with a focus on precision medicine and cancer immunotherapy in Japan.

With 2.5 million foreigners living in Japan, there is a great lack of information regarding what is available to this community in early diagnosis and personalized medicine. Whether a personal cancer scare, a family history of cancer, a loved one, friend or colleague who is affected; cancer is pervasive. And yet the tools available to determine our cancer risks, early detection, monitoring and treatments, particularly immunotherapeutic interventions are largely unknown.

ImmunoGenex is at the forefront of personalized medicine and cancer immunotherapy, and what it has to offer is unique to Japan and unavailable in the U.S., Europe or elsewhere in the world.
