Genomics and Precision Oncology for Better Care

Dr. Olufunmilayo I. Olopade is a force to be reckoned with in healthcare and oncology. She starts by sharing her optimism that, with the pace and scope of current breakthroughs, cancer will become a manageable, chronic disease before too long. The study and application of genomics are allowing the speed of progress to continue to accelerate. What’s more, we will have better tools available to us to begin to prevent, as well as to treat, cancer. Research into BRCA genes and their varying applications being a prime example. One size of treatment no longer fits all. Personlized therapies based on your genes are the future. The data are coming, as are the results.
