Annual Meeting to Highlight Precision Medicine, Academic Difference

The 2016 AACI/CCAF Annual Meeting will feature three panel discussions focused on precision medicine, along with an update on AACI’s Academic Difference Initiative, led by AACI President George J. Weiner, MD.

The precision medicine presentations will highlight the creation and management of molecular tumor boards, efforts to facilitate precision medicine collaboration, and in-house versus outsourced molecular testing.

A session entitled, "Academic Difference Initiative: Cancer Centers’ Impact on Patient Care, Research, Education, and the Local Economy", will explore how accelerating progress in cancer medicine depends on the success of academic cancer centers and the development of new models of collaboration between these centers and community oncology.

Online registration continues for the meeting, which runs from October 23-25, in Chicago. Information about the meeting, including the program and electronic registration, is available on AACI’s website.
