Deep Dive: The Future of Oncology

This year’s ASCO showed us that while COVID-19 might be front and centre of everyone’s minds, the desire to see real change in cancer treatment hasn’t diminished. In this issue of Deep Dive, Jennifer Harris from Syneos Health discusses the biggest takeaways from the conference with Richard Staines.

We also take a look at how COVID-19 is affecting cancer trials, and what the industry can do to solve these issues.

Plus we have views and analysis from several cancer experts – including contributors from GSK, Accenture, ICON and Advanced Clinical – on how they think the future of oncology will play out.
