With the advent of single-cell genomic technologies, we can now interrogate cancer heterogeneity at a more fundamental level to enable more informed and potentially effective therapeutic strategies in clinical development.
TORONTO (PRWEB) November 24, 2020
In oncology therapeutic development and clinical intervention, partial responses and relapse are common phenomena and a significant impediment to effective treatments for patients. As our understanding of the complex biology of cancers continues to increase, we know that a significant contributor to these effects lies in cancers harboring a diverse collection of cells with distinct and dynamic molecular profiles. This feature of cancer heterogeneity manifests in several ways: intra- and inter-tumor, intra-cellular, as well as spatial and temporal differences.
With the advent of single-cell genomic technologies, we can now interrogate cancer heterogeneity at a more fundamental level to enable more informed and potentially effective therapeutic strategies in clinical development. In this webinar, featured speakers will discuss a specific platform capable of detecting genomic content from individual cells, thereby providing insights into cancer heterogeneity and response to specific therapeutics.
Join Steve Anderson, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer, Covance Drug Development; and Bin Wu, PhD, Senior Director, Head of Translational Medicine, Agios Pharmaceuticals, Inc., in a live webinar on Monday, December 14, 2020 at 11am EST (4pm GMT/UK).
