"At ASCO, we will present clinical and biomarker data from our lead bispecific tebentafusp programme that provide insight into its mechanism of action," said David Berman, Head of Research and Development at Immunocore. "We believe these data will translate across our ImmTAC platform and provide another step towards identifying which patient populations benefit."
