ESMO Advanced Course on Biomarkers for Precision Medicine

28 - 29 Nov 2019

Zurich, Switzerland

ESMO Advanced Course on Biomarkers for Precision Medicine Square

Presentations from all ESMO Advanced Courses are open to all according to the presenters' agreement to release them. ESMO thanks the authors for their generosity.

The use of these presentations is for personal educational purposes only.

Learning objectives
  • An increasing number of therapeutics that require biomarkers testing are available for clinical use or are in advanced phase of clinical development
  • Different technologies can be used for biomarker testing depending on the nature of the biomarker and the availability of biological samples
  • The increasing use of large panels for comprehensive genomic profiling raises issues on data interpretation that require a multidisciplinary approach
  • Monitoring the molecular evolution of the disease might allow the identification of resistance mechanisms and the development of more effective therapeutic strategies
  • The identification of germline variants requires the activation of genetic counselling programs for patients and their families

This event has been supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Lilly Oncology and MSD.
