Agenda Day 2 @ 08:40

Precision oncology needs data sharing: Integrating genomic and clinical data to advance patient care and understanding patient outcomes

  • Does decoding the genes of patients’ cancer help to accelerate the pace of discovery?
  • Is more sequencing, across large populations worthwhile?
  • How to combine all these data into one searchable pool?
  • How will this translate to better and more personalized vaccines or treatments for patients?
  • The paradigm of bringing multiple cancer centers together, connecting academics with industry and how to data share
  • The type of data sharing necessary to learn from the experience of patients that go through cancer immunotherapy
