The OncoLens Molecular and Rare Disease Tumor Board Monthly Series
Live 60-Minute Webinar
Dates TBD in June

Please join us for our next Molecular Tumor Board on best practices for biomarker testing in breast, non-small cell, and gastric cancer.

The oncology landscape is rapidly evolving, and precision medicine has become a vital area of research. Early targeted therapies focused on just a few genetic mutations and cancer types, but our ever-expanding knowledge of genetic drivers has revealed promising biomarkers across a growing range of tumor lines. The rapid evolution from a one-size-fits-all approach has led to an increased focus on molecular profiling to match genomic alterations with targeted therapies that optimize patient outcomes.

Join us for a Grand Rounds program where important case scenarios will be presented, along with expert guidance on overcoming common testing barriers in the community oncology setting.
