We have two stories to share today from the EORTC-NCI-AACR Molecular Targets conference, which are posted separately owing to different embargo times.

The second posting later focuses exclusively on KRAS and Mirati’s turn in the spotlight.

Due to the embargo, it will not be available until 1545 hrs CET (1045 hrs ET) and will include some thought leader perspectives on the data.  I’ll add the link here in due course.

In this post, we look carefully at several targets we have been following preclinically for a while and finally initial clinical is either available or they are heading into the clinic – what can we learn from the presentations?
