2021 Precision Oncology Summit: Personalizing Treatment to Improve Patient Outcomes

Salt Lake City, UT US
October 3, 2021

The 2021 Precision Oncology Summit: Personalizing treatment to improve patient outcomes is a one-day conference featuring leading experts in the field of precision oncology who will provide a comprehensive overview of implications of actionable molecular alterations across common malignancies.

Expert faculty will discuss and analyze the latest scientific findings and practice-changing advances in precision oncology, including the key abstracts relevant to precision oncology presented at the 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting in June 2021.

This conference will augment healthcare providers’ foundation of knowledge and clinical competence in several areas, including:

  • Integrating different platforms available for testing of actionable molecular alterations for identification of targeted therapy options.
  • Current and evolving paradigms in precision oncology approach for management of common malignancies.
  • Trends, challenges, controversies, and cost-considerations of precision oncology approaches and targeted therapies.

Abstract Presentation Information

 

Abstract Presentation times: 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM on Friday, October 1, 2021 and Saturday, October 2, 2021.

All abstracts will be presented as oral presentations. Each presenter will have 5-minutes for their presentation and 2-minutes for questions and answers. You will present your abstract as a powerpoint presentation not in a poster format.

Abstract Presentation Schedule has been emailed to all accepted abstract authors. You will present your abstract during the time you selected.

All presenters must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to be able to present their abstracts. 

You must be registered for the conference to present your abstract. If you are a resident or fellow presenting the abstract, please follow the instructions for fellow/resident registration to receive a registration fee waiver.

Masks Required to Attend - We also ask that each attendee wear a mask while indoors. We will provide disposable masks if you forget to bring yours.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this educational activity on precision oncology, participants will be able to:

  • Identify frequent molecular abnormalities across several common malignancies and understand appropriate timing of testing to detect these abnormalities.
  • Interpret results of next generation sequencing and other biomarkers predictive of response to targeted therapies and recognize the challenges involved.
  • Explain the role, including advantages and disadvantages, of different testing methodologies available for selection of targeted therapies.
  • Plan optimal molecular-targeted treatment strategies for treatment of cancer.
  • Outline emerging research, the mechanism of action, and the role of novel molecular-targeted therapies in clinical investigation for cancer patients.
