Description:

The OncoSET Symposium will provide healthcare professionals with state-of-the-art information related to significant new advances in precision medicine for cancer and the evolving standard of personalized cancer care. The program will focus on emerging technologies used to generate large scale genomic data, and the steps to filter, evaluate and apply this knowledge to determine the most effective course of treatment for each patient.

Symposium participants will discover new approaches to personalized cancer therapy based on current research and patient-specific genetic patterns. Participants will also examine the practical considerations of using a precision medicine approach in immuno-oncology and develop strategies for translating advances in precision medicine to their clinical practice.

Keynote Speaker -- Warren Kibbe, PhD, National Cancer Institute: Precision Medicine in the Age of NCI MATCH and the Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot
