Demystifying the science behind advances in ovarian cancer
Royal Marsden Hospital
Description: Using a combination of colourful diagrams and clear explanations, I will describe the gene mutations and other defects that drive ovarian cancer (including fallopian tube and other primary peritoneal cancers). I will also examine how this knowledge impacts treatment choice and explain the science behind chemotherapy and PARP, B-Raf and angiogenesis inhibitors. The day will also include the potential of immunotherapy and novel approaches for treatment, screening and patient monitoring.
Audience: Ideal for anyone with an A level or equivalent understanding of cell biology and genetics and who works with cancer patients, data or treatments.
