Eliminating Cancer: Novel Targets and Therapeutic Approaches
In this seminar learn how the most recent discoveries through cancer research are being translated into cutting edge treatments for cancer patients. New approaches utilizing computer-assisted diagnostics, medical imaging and statistical pattern recognition allow for a more accurate diagnosis of a range of malignancies. Comprehensive genomic profiling of tumors through next-generation sequencing technologies offers the promise of personalized cancer therapy with targeted drugs. We will discuss the innovative immunotherapy approaches that are being utilized to harness the immune system in the fight against cancer and translational clinical trials that are being tested to study novel drugs in patients.
