Event Description

Are you interested in learning how the study and management of cancer treatment is changing since the implementation of genomic sequencing? Next generation sequencing of patient tumor samples is becoming the main tool to stratify patients into clinical trials, such that only the molecular alteration-bearing patients will receive the corresponding targeted therapy. In this journal club, participants will learn about different approaches for identification of druggable cancer vulnerabilities as well as hurdles for the implementation of these therapeutics such as treatment resistance. Upon completion of the summer JC, students will have better understanding of current ways to pharmacological and genetic targeting of cancer.
