Dr. Joshua Brody of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City to Present an American Society of Hematology 2015 Preview

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 16, 2015) - The Trout Group, the leading global investor relations and strategic advisory firm servicing the life sciences industry, will host an American Society of Hematology 2015 preview breakfast and webcast on November 23, 2015 at 9:00 am ET in New York. This preview will highlight select studies being presented at the upcoming 2015 meeting of the American Society of Hematology, as discussed by our invited faculty, Dr. Joshua Brody. This event marks the 25th presentation in Trout's Cancer Immunotherapy "Trout Talks" series. The live webcast of the event will be available at trouttalk.troutgroup.com.

Dr. Brody is an Assistant Professor in Hematology and Medical Oncology, and the Director of the Lymphoma Immunotherapy Program at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. The Lymphoma Immunotherapy Program focuses on basic and applied tumor immunology, particularly in lymphoma, melanoma, and ovarian adenocarcinoma. Other areas of interest include: cancer vaccines, sequencing of the TCRbV repertoires, and studies of small-molecule inhibitors of lymphocyte signal transduction, e.g. PI3K, mTOR, and BTK.

Dr. Brody will offer his insights on the 2015 ASH abstracts most relevant to his research interests, as well as abstracts -- appropriate to Dr. Brody's skill set -- suggested beforehand by those who plan on attending live or via webcast.

The talk, moderated by Trout Group scientific advisor, Neil Canavan, will consist of a 45 minutes discussion of selected abstracts by Dr. Brody's discussion, followed by 15 minutes of questions from the audience. Questions from webcast participants should be sent to ncanavan@troutgroup.com. The next Trout Talk in our Cancer Immunotherapy series is scheduled for January 11, 2016 in San Francisco, CA.
