January 26, 2023 MGH Cancer Center Grand Rounds 2022-2023: Improving Response to Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Therapy Through Solving the Underpinnings of Immune-Related Adverse Events - Archive


This activity provides on-demand archived lectures from the MGH Cancer Center Grand Rounds 2022-2023 series. As one of the leading academic cancer centers in the country, our research and clinical staff need to be educated on cutting edge information on advances and perspectives on cancer research and treatment across the full spectrum of cancer specialization. This will help clinicians understand, assess and apply this information in our rapidly advancing and highly specialized organization.  Clinicians will present and discuss this information in a multi-specialty setting. Clinicians will be informed and challenged across the organization to reach beyond their own specialization and role, and support higher levels of learning and competence for themselves, teams, and functions.

Session formats will vary between didactic presentations, panel discussions, and debates. All sessions will allow live attendees the opportunity to interact with the presenters and ask questions, thus supporting active learning.

Course Director: Colin D. Weekes, MD, PhD
