 Session Abstract – PMWC Silicon Valley


Cancer genomic profiling can identify germline and medically actionable mutation(s) in cancer predisposition genes. This can present a complex problem for diagnostics labs because of broader implications regarding the patient’s overall health risk, risk of future cancers, and implications for the patient’s family. This panel discussion will focus on how diagnostics labs are addressing this complexity.
