Amsterdam, Netherlands : 4 - 6 June 2018
Molecular pathology is one of the linchpins of precision medicine. No longer can treatment decisions related to therapy selection be rendered solely on the basis of histopathological analyses, as genomic analyses of human cancers are resulting in the identification of the genetic determinants of tumourigenesis, cancer progression and therapy response.
The pathologists’ role in the implementation of molecular tests in diagnostic practice and the ability of pathology laboratories to perform these tests and communicate the results to oncologists are germane to the successful translation of scientific advancements into benefit to patients.
This course aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art molecular pathology approaches and their application, and to discuss current genomics and molecular pathology of solid malignancies.
This course will provide a discussion of current concepts in molecular pathology, molecular pathology methods and their application. It will be beneficial for practicing pathologists and oncologists, residents and fellows in pathology and oncology, and molecular biologists with an interest in molecular pathology and precision medicine.
