Summary of Meeting:
The discovery of genomic and epigenetic alterations in individual cancers has led to a wellspring of precision medicine innovations and therapeutic successes in oncology. Accordingly, cancer treatments have migrated away from “one size fits all” approaches. However, although precision medicine is becoming more multi-disciplinary, progress is still hindered by insufficient collaboration between basic researchers, drug development, and physician scientists with broad expertise across cancer biology, genomics and other relevant fields. This conference will bring together diverse experts from academic, pharma/biotech and government sectors to discuss current challenges and future directions in precision oncology. In particular, the meeting will foster cross-talk between clinicians, cancer biologists and genomic scientists, to identify and address key knowledge gaps that limit the advancement of new precision therapies. Topics will cover: (1) novel genomic insights, therapeutically-promising mechanisms and cancer drug targets; (2) recent translational breakthroughs; and (3) the incorporation of new diagnostic tools as companions to new precision treatments. The program will emphasize leading-edge advances in “reverse translation” technologies, such as liquid biopsies and single cell genomics, in addition to innovative, first-in-class approaches to novel therapeutics. Ultimately, the goal of the conference is to forge new collaborations across scientific and clinical boundaries, to advance the next generation of precision medicine against cancer.
