8th EACR-OECI Joint Training Course: Molecular Pathology Approach to Cancer 2018
De Rode Hoed *Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS Visit the Venue to read more
Molecular pathology is one of the linchpins of precision medicine. No longer can treatment decisions be made solely on the basis of histopathological analyses - because genomic analyses of human cancers are resulting in the identification of the genetic determinants of tumourigenesis, cancer progression and therapy response.
Pathologists’ role in the implementation of molecular tests in diagnostic practice and the ability of pathology laboratories to perform these tests and communicate the results to oncologists are very important to the successful translation of scientific advancements into benefit to patients.
This course aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art molecular pathology approaches and their application, and to discuss current genomics and molecular pathology of solid malignancies.
This course will provide a discussion of current concepts in molecular pathology, molecular pathology methods and their application, which would be beneficial for practicing pathologists and oncologists, residents and fellows in pathology and oncology, and molecular biologists with an interest in molecular pathology and precision medicine.
Topics to be covered
The role of the pathologist in precision medicine
Massively parallel sequencing methods and data interpretation
Perspectives in molecular testing for clinical decision-making in oncology in Europe and USA
