The National Cancer Institute Symposium on Integrative Cancer Biology and Genomics: Third Symposium on Translational Genomics

The field of translational genomics is rapidly progressing, yet the systematic application of current knowledge to improve patient care remains a formidable challenge. This symposium will provide a dedicated forum for the advancement, implementation and exchange of information on GWAS/eQTL: Translational Inferences, Tumor Heterogeneity: Implications for Clinical Application, Genomic Oncology: State of the Art, and Metabolomics in Oncology: Therapeutic Potential, for translation into clinical practice with the ultimate goal to improve the health of patients with cancer.
