Personalis Announces New Data to be Presented at AACR Virtual Scientific Meeting

MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 22, 2020--Personalis, Inc., (Nasdaq: PSNL) a leader in advanced genomics for cancer, today announced that the company will present new data in scientific posters to be presented at the 2020 American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Virtual Annual Meeting II, which will be held online, June 22-24, 2020.

These abstract showcases data from ImmunoID NeXT, the first platform to enable comprehensive analysis of both a tumor and its immune microenvironment from a single sample. The ImmunoID NeXT Platform® can be used to investigate the key tumor- and immune-related areas of cancer biology, consolidating multiple oncology biomarker assays into one and maximizing the biological information that can be generated from a precious tumor specimen.

Following are details and links to the scientific posters that will be presented at the online meeting.
