NSW Statewide Seminar Series: Molecular Tumour Board
The concept of Precision Oncology is to optimise management for individual cancer patients based on molecular features of their disease.
A Molecular Tumour Board (MTB) is a multi-disciplinary forum for discussion, interpretation and communication about molecular results that may have implications for patient care. MTBs often include geneticists, bioinformaticians and molecular biologists in addition to clinical disciplines such as oncology, surgery, radiotherapy and pathology.
The NSW Cancer Research Seminar Series educational MTB sessions will include case-based presentations from MTBs working in paediatric and adult cancer. This will be an opportunity to share knowledge across cancer types; sparking new research ideas and fostering collaboration.
The next seminar will be held on Tuesday the 19th of July from 12.30pm – 1.30pm.
