Title: Moving Genomics and Proteomics into Clinical Cancer Care
Description: The use of genomics and proteomics in the care of the cancer patients is rapidly becoming more clinically applicable. The purpose of this symposium will be to update the attendees on current state of clinical applications of gene expression assays and proteomics in the diagnosis, screening, and treatment of lung, breast, prostate, and pancreatic cancer. Following the completion of the course they will have an improved understanding of the value and clinical relevance of this technology in the treatment of cancer patients. The focus will be on clinical application(s) and not on research methodology or more basic research in these fields.
