LETTER FROM THE EDITOR - MAY

 

Hello JITC Readers,



Dear JITC Readers,

Welcome to the latest edition of the JITC Digest. As the busy meeting season continues, I know many of us are excited to check out the latest research that will be unveiled at next month’s American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in Chicago. For those of you attending in person, please stop by the SITC Booth (#2026) in the exhibition hall, where I will be holding a Meet the Editor activity on Sunday, June 4th, 11–11:30 am CT. It’s a great opportunity to talk about your work and explore opportunities within JITC.

Whether or not you’re attending the meeting, you can follow along with JITC’s social media coverage of ASCO 2023 on Twitter and LinkedIn. Our journal’s social media presence continues to expand, thanks in no small part to our dedicated Social Media Editors Drs. Kristin Anderson, Praveen Bommareddy, and Cheng Sun. Learn more about each of them in the special feature below.

You can also check out this month’s Editor’s Picks, which highlight efforts from around the world and across the research spectrum, including the generation and preclinical characterization of a novel SIRPĪ± blocking antibody, BYON4228, by van Helden et al, and how radiation treatment shapes the immune compartment and interactions with cancer cells within renal cell carcinoma patient tumors from Chow et al.
