Imagine a world where nearly every cancer patient was diagnosed early, at a treatable stage, had access to targeted therapies and their prognosis was vastly improved. Understanding the deep heterogeneity within tumours may help us get closer to delivering this vision.
Current precision oncology approaches are already impacting patient care, but they remain underused. Targeted therapies do not exist for all tumour types, diagnostic tests are not yet widely implemented in healthcare and there is a wealth of data to sift through in order to find actionable insights. How can we move closer to fulfilling the vision of precision oncology?
Precision Oncology ONLINE is a 3-part webinar series that will bring together global experts to discuss how we can leverage our current knowledge, expand on it and deliver the very best treatment options to patients.
