About Event

The 8th Tumor Models San Francisco Summit 2024 

The Tumor Models San Francisco Summit was the only West Coast industry-led meeting dedicated to defining preclinical modelling approaches, with real-world case studies to support oncology studies that empowered people to accelerate your candidate’s clinical translatability with optimized efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.

With the FDA Modernization Act 2.0 enabling non-animal models to be integrated into drug pipelines and combination regimes gaining approval as targeted therapies, the humanized animal model space is projected to boom to $338 million by 2027. Alongside this growth and the current high rate of attrition in oncology, the need for more clarity on best practice in tumor modelling also increases to ensure you don’t fall behind.

The 8th annual event returned to San Francisco in January 2024 which provided an update on tumor model advancements, and how they can complement existing models to increase clinical confidence and clinical relevancy in your candidate.
