12th International Clinical Cancer Genomics Conference: Accelerating Progress in Precision Medicine for Cancer: The Time is Now

Chicago, IL US
April 18, 2024 to April 21, 2024
Rapid advances in genomic technologies have revolutionized our approach to risk-adapted cancer treatments and screening for early detection or prevention of cancer, heralding the era of precision health care across the continuum of cancer care. Knowledge of the genomic landscape and immune microenvironment of common cancers has fueled the need to identify cancer patients and healthy individuals at risk of the most lethal but treatable types of cancers where more intensive surveillance and personalized management plan can be implemented to improve overall survival. A classic example is identifying BRCA1 gene mutation carriers to preempt or prevent the development of lethal basal-like breast cancers and treating BRCA-Associated cancer with Parp Inhibitors. Identifying Lynch Syndrome patients led to the development of curative neoadjuvant immunotherapy approaches for Rectal Cancer.
Accelerating Progress in Precision Medicine for Cancer: The Time is Now will provide an interdisciplinary educational forum in which to update state-of-the-art science in cancer genomics, including Artificial Intelligence, discuss real-world cases, curate interesting pedigrees, and prepare case summaries to disseminate new knowledge and evidence-based management of high-risk patients and their at-risk family members. The goal of this educational activity is to equip healthcare providers with practical tools and knowledge to accelerate progress in precision medicine for cancer.
Precision Medicine in Practice Primer and Cased-Based Workshop
April 18,  2024 | 1:00 pm-5:00 pm CT
Registration for the optional Pre-conference Workshop is an additional $200. You must be registered to attend the full course to be eligible for the pre-conference workshop.

This activity is brought to you in partnership with CCGCOP.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed for physicians, physician assistants, advanced nurse practitioners, genetic counselors, oncology nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals currently involved in providing cancer genetics risk assessment services or initiating such services in their health care system. Special efforts will be made to meet the needs of clinicians practicing in non-academic centers and geographically and/or socioeconomically underserved communities.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review advances in genetics, genomics, and “Omics” technologies transforming precision medicine for cancer; 
  • Gain a better understanding of controversies in germline genomic testing for risk-adapted screening and integration of polygenic risk score for cancer prevention; 
  • Recognize advances in clinical research with special emphasis on patient-centric and biomarker informed clinical trials in high risk populations; 
  • Identify molecular determinants of response to therapy in hematologic malignancies and solid tumors;
  • Appreciate patient advocacy and partnerships to accelerate progress in development of novel therapies and vaccines for cancer control; 
  • Learn how Artificial Intelligence is transform health care to promote health equity in the US and across the world.
