Genomics in Cancer Treatment Evening Event

West Midlands GMC will hold a free event covering the latest developments in cancer therapies this Tuesday 28th March

Genetics is transforming our understanding of cancer. Ultimately this will lead to improved diagnosis, better personalised treatment targeted to an individual's genomics, and even the development of new drugs and therapies.

'The future of cancer treatment: can genetic science benefit patients?’ will take place between 6pm and 9pm and feature leading researchers and clinicians talking about the cancer programme of NHS England’s pioneering 100,000 Genomes Project, as well as the S:CORT programme and how genomics can improve bowel cancer therapies. There will also be talks by patients, and we will hear from charities regarding the developing role of genomics in cancer care. At the close of the event there will be time for a discussion and a Q&A session providing the opportunity to consider how cutting-edge science is shaping cancer treatment for patients in Birmingham, the West Midlands and beyond.
