Description

Advantages in molecular characterization for precision oncology - Highlights from the ClinGen Somatic Cancer and VICC Virtual Molecular Tumor Board Case Series

 

Tuesday, January 24, 2023

11:00am-12:00pm ET

Course Description

This CME Case Series reflects the work of molecular tumor boards by featuring an interdisciplinary discussion of cases that are subject to comprehensive molecular characterization using a variety of advanced technologies. The molecular characterization of tumor samples ranges from methods on the genomic level to recent advances in proteomics. The field is advancing rapidly, and more and more approaches will translate from basic research to clinical care. In this session, we will summarize the variety of methods described in previous virtual molecular tumor boards and highlight the most interesting cases from 2022. In addition, we will give an outlook on topics to come in 2023.

Target Audience

All medical and healthcare professionals and researchers interested in understanding cancer genomic testing and somatic and germline variant interpretation methods. This series is presented as a collaboration between ClinGen Somatic, VICC, and ACMG consortia.
