Front Line Genomics invites you to their event

Precision Oncology ONLINE - Molecular characterisation of cancers for precision oncology

About this event

The molecular profiling of cancer has enabled deeper insights into the complexity of cancer. From the development of the first targeted cancer therapy, to understanding cancer risk and putting in preventative measures, being able to tailor the cancer treatment pathway to an individual based on their molecular information has a lot of potential for better outcomes.

However, a lot of challenges remain with realising the dream of precision oncology. Among the challenges include the development and refinement of informative biomarkers, data interpretation and actionability.

Join us for this unique series: Precision Oncology ONLINE as we address the challenges associated with turning cancer research into the next era of cancer care.

Webinar 1: Molecular characterisation of cancers for precision oncology

7th October, 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 10am EDT

With the ongoing research into the omics of cancer, our understanding is rapidly developing. However, the translation of these findings into the clinic is slow. This webinar will focus on how the molecular characterisation of tumours can translate into advances in the clinical management of cancers and bring us closer to the promise of precision oncology.

Webinar 2: Advances in diagnostics and biomarker development

14th October, 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 10am EDT

The development of diagnostic assays and biomarkers that can be used in the clinical setting will transform the way molecular information is gathered and utilised in the patient cancer journey. This webinar will focus on research that advances diagnostics and biomarker development for precision oncology.
