Precision Oncology

Lesson 5. Today’s Challenges

Rules are made along the way in research. How does a physician stay in control in clinical operation? Genomics has enhanced the ability to probe beyond single DNA alterations that influence tumor behavior and present targets for new therapeutics. Responsible use of this remarkable technology involves generating evidence, aggregation of molecular and clinical data in […]

Lesson 5. Barriers in Using Genetics in Practice

Until more recently, the idea that one could know their risk of developing a specific medical condition would have been considered far-fetched. However, recent advances in the fields of genetics and genomics have made genetic testing more broadly available, providing individuals with important, and potentially life-changing, information about their futures and those of their children.

Lesson 4. Overview of Precision Oncology Applications

Precision Oncology, defined as molecular profiling of tumors to identify targetable alterations, is rapidly developing and has entered the mainstream of clinical practice. Genomic testing involves many stakeholders working in a coordinated fashion to deliver high-quality tissue samples to high-quality laboratories, where appropriate next-generation sequencing (NGS) molecular analysis leads to actionable results.
