AACR VIRTUAL PATIENT ADVOCATE FORUM
HOW EVOLUTION SHAPES CANCER
Monday, December 13, 2021
1 – 3:30 p.m. ET
Evolutionary theories are shaping how we understand the evolution of cancer and cancer metastasis. Integrating evolutionary theory into cancer treatment is key to recognizing and controlling therapeutic resistance and developing proactive therapy regimens. This Patient Advocate Forum will also explore ways that cancer evolution can impact and drive new approaches to develop new biomarkers and more effective therapeutic targets.
