Gene Profiling in Clinical Oncology

6 ESCO credits

08.04.2011  -  09.04.2011

Viareggio

COURSES AND SEMINARS

Cancer genetics / genomics

Description

Chair: M. Aapro, CH


Dear Colleagues,

The European School of Oncology is delighted that so many experts of lung, colorectal and breast cancer have accepted to be faculty members of the «Gene Profiling in Oncology» course.

The development of specific treatments, with an endocrine or other «target» is revolutionizing cancer treatment. We need to define the disease of the patient more precisely.
Which parameters are of importance for the efficacy of the treatment? What should be asked from new methods? What do they bring today?

Not all answers will come from the discussions at the meeting, but certainly there will be a lively debate!

We look forward to your presence at this course 

Matti S. Aapro
Course chair
