Dr Nikesh Kotecha speaks to ecancer at the WIN 2019 Symposium in Paris about the use of informatics in immuno-oncology in clinical trials, community-wide and data projects.

He explains the idea of informatics, which is used to collect both molecular and clinical patient information and apply computational methods to manipulate the data - which may be useful in treating these patients.

Dr Kotecha also discusses the cost-effectiveness of these methods - which is smaller compared to the actual drugs themselves.

He also mentions the clinical impact that these techniques may provide in terms of selecting the most effective therapies while understanding resistance and toxicity.
