Overview

Winning the War Against Cancer in the Genomics Era: Is It About Time?

Breakthroughs in genomics and targeted therapies have now reached the clinic, and will revolutionize the practice of oncology.  However, in order to change outcomes in cancer, we can no longer use old paradigms for treating patients and designing clinical trials.   In effect, genomics is a disruptive technology because it has unveiled a reality for cancer that makes standard operating procedures obsolete.   Yet we continue to retrofit traditional treatments into this new reality.   This can and must change if we are to transform the lives of patients with cancer.
