Towards Precision Cancer Therapy – From Biomarker Discovery to Companion Diagnostic Assay Development, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Share Article

Most scientists agree precision cancer therapy can lead to better patient outcomes. In order to achieve this, scientists must identify potential therapeutic targets through biomarker selection and companion diagnostic development. In this free webinar, the featured speaker will review work done at the Institute of Cancer Research to illustrate the journey towards precision cancer therapy.

Join Anguraj Sadanandam, PhD, Team Leader, Systems and Precision Cancer Medicine Team, Division of Molecular Pathology, Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) in a live webinar on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at 12pm EDT (5pm BST/UK) to learn about the process of biomarker and companion diagnostic development including machine learning approaches in different gastrointestinal cancers and their translational relevance.

Participants will learn about:

  • Overview of gastrointestinal tumor types
  • Challenges of biomarker identification
  • Classification of tumors based on cell-of-origin/phenotype, therapeutic response and prognostic gene signatures
  • Applications of machine learning approaches in companion diagnostic development

These concepts will be reviewed in the context of work done at the Institute of Cancer Research.

This webinar will appeal to researchers, scientists and oncologists working in:

  • Biomarker discovery
  • Companion diagnostics
  • Molecular Pathology
  • Oncology
  • Machine learning
  • Stratification and subtypes
  • Precision Medicine
