Session Spotlight: Screenings, Biomarkers & Diagnostic Testing to Manage Outcomes and Costs

Advances in our understanding of the genetic mutations and alterations and resultant expression are leading to the identification of more and more biomarkers to help direct patient management. Biomarker development and applications are being seen in early detection, prognosis, toxicity profiling, predictive, effective monitoring, follow up, etc.

IIR’s Collaborative Summit for Oncology brings together a multi-stakeholder view of the current state of biomarker use and how the use of these applications will lead to less toxic care. They will also discuss insights into what you can expect to see in the next 3-5 years to increase positive outcomes and manage costs of oncology.
