OVERVIEWtop

Precision medicine is rapidly evolving in the management of cancer. The use of novel molecular or genetic signatures in decision making regarding local-regional management is in its infancy. The ability to improve outcomes in cancer using radiation therapy will be focused on incorporating novel genomic- or biology-based biomarkers, in addition to existing clinical and pathologic features, in the treatment of patients. This symposium will provide participants an overview of the new developments of precision medicine in radiation oncology and help to stimulate research ideas and to advance the integration of new research findings into individualized radiation therapy and its clinical applications.

TARGET AUDIENCEtop

This activity is designed for radiation oncology clinicians, radiobiologists, medical physicists, researchers, residents, fellows, medical students and other allied health professionals involved in radiotherapy treatment and research.

OBJECTIVEStop

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Examine the current and future directions of physics research in radiation oncology and the clinical implementations of new technologies
  • Describe recent discoveries of cancer biology research involving the mechanisms of biological response of cancer and normal cells to radiation
  • Review recent advances in radiation oncology clinical/translational research and their applications to improved patient care
