About the Speaker

Dr Weiss is a medical oncologist at UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill. His primary focus is on personalized immunotherapy for lung cancer and head/neck cancer. At the current time, his primary effort is PANDA-VAC, a personalized and adaptive vaccine generated from prediction of Neo-antigens (LCCC1804). He is also in the early stages of cellular therapeutics work targeting GD2 and MAGE-A4 and in very early work on a novel mechanism for better selection of TIL (tumor infiltrating lymphocytes) products. He is the national PI for investigator-initiated trials evaluating the introduction of oncolytic virus into malignant pleural effusions (LCCC1626), induction chemoimmunotherapy in locally advanced, surgically resectable head and neck cancer (LCCC1621), and adjuvant immune-radiotherapy in head/neck cancer (LCCC1725). A funded effort to evaluate LXR/ApoE agonism to reduce MDSCs (LCCC1925) is funded and in the protocol writing stage. Dr. Weiss is also leads and participates in several international industry efforts; key amongst these is ILIAD (IM-202, ilixadencel dendritic cell infusion into solid tumors).
