Join us for the Exploring Ethics event, Precision Genomics and Immunotherapy: Cancer and Beyond, presented by Dr. Razelle Kurzrock, MD, Distinguished Professor of Medicine, Associate Director for Clinical Science, Director for the Center for Personalized Cancer Therapy, Leader in Experimental Therapeutics, and Director for the Rare Tumor Clinic at the University of California, San Diego, Moores Cancer Center.

Breakthroughs in genomics and targeted therapies are revolutionizing the practice of clinical oncology. Precision genomics and immunotherapy offer promise to improve outcomes in cancer, but doing so means we need to move beyond historical models for cancer diagnosis and treatment. In this program we will discuss insights from this rapidly changing field and address some of the ethical challenges that must be met if we are to transform the lives of patients with cancer.    

Date/Time: Wednesday, May 5, 2021, 5:30 pm-7:00 pm
