“Predictive biomarkers for response to etrolizumab therapy in IBD”


Biog: Mary Keir received her Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco, where her thesis work focused on innate responses to HIV infection in the human thymus. Following completion of her Ph.D, she undertook postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School, where she studied the role of PD-1:PD-L1 interactions in T cell tolerance and autoimmunity. Mary next moved to Genentech to join the Immunology Diagnostic Discovery group and focus on biomarker identification and utility in clinical trials. At Genentech, she has led biomarker efforts in both systemic lupus erythematosus and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Her current research focus is on predictive biomarkers of inflammatory subgroups in IBD as well as prognostic biomarkers of disease.
