Oncology in the genomics era
Cancer treatment options are rapidly evolving. Rapid advancement in cancer genomics and technology is leading to increasing availability of targeted therapies. Coupled with genomic testing, these new therapeutic options present unprecedented opportunities to more effectively tailor clinical treatment to each patient.
While cancer genomics offers much promise, this science is also making the practice of oncology more complex and challenging. How can you keep up-to-date on the massive amount of emerging research data associated with every cancer you treat? How can you readily obtain, interpret and integrate genomic data about your patients’ cancers into informed treatment recommendations?
