Session Abstract – PMWC 2020 Silicon Valley


Despite the availability of genomic testing and new treatments including immunotherapy, cancer outcomes have not changed much over the years. However this may be poised to change. In this panel discussion with representatives from medicine, industry and patient advocacy, we will discuss new molecular testing technologies that are enabling the diagnosis and treatment of solid cancers across all disease stages, impacting patient outcomes and lowering healthcare costs. Dare we hope that cancer may be a chronic disease in the not so distant future?
