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 led by Dr. Maria E. Arcila, focused on best practices for biomarker testing in breast, non-small cell lung, and gastric cancer. Important case scenarios will be presented, along with expert guidance on overcoming common testing barriers in the community oncology setting.

This educational activity is designed for practicing clinicians, including oncologists, pathologists, and other oncology clinicians (nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants) who manage patients with solid tumors, including breast, non-small cell lung, and gastric cancers.
After engaging in this activity, clinicians will be able to:

  • Apply appropriate methods and best practices for biomarker testing in breast, non-small cell lung, and gastric cancers
  • Utilize strategies to overcome barriers to biomarker testing
  • Identify the role and place of biomarker testing in treating breast, non-small cell lung, and gastric cancers
