Description

VCCC Winter Wednesday Lecture

The evolving landscape of immunotherapy for bladder cancer with Professor Peter Black, University of British Columbia, Canada.

For some time, advances in bladder cancer therapy lagged behind those in other cancers. Recently, however, the advent of checkpoint blockade drugs has moved bladder cancer to the forefront of immuno-oncology.

Five drugs have now been approved in the US for metastatic bladder cancer and multiple trials are ongoing in earlier stage disease, guided by a focus on biomarker discovery and validation. New trials are also studying combination therapies and novel immunotherapies beyond PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors.

In this special VCCC Wednesday seminar presentation, Canadian-based expert, Prof Peter Black, will explore the evolving landscape of immunotherapy in bladder cancer.

Dr Black is a Urologic Oncologist at Vancouver General Hospital, a Research Scientist at the Vancouver Prostate Centre, and an Professor in the Department of Urologic Sciences at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Following an undergraduate degree from the UBC, Prof Black gained his medical degree at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany. He completed his urologic training at the University of Washington in Seattle and fellowship in urologic oncology at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. Prof Black maintains a translational research program in urothelial carcinoma and is an active cancer clinical triallist in this field.

Presentation: 3.30pm - 4.40pm
