The Role of Liquid Biopsies to Track Disease Response and the Potential for Acquired Resistance
We are excited to be able to present final videos from this highly anticipated annual event, the 2020 Targeted Therapies Patient Forum.
This year's live-online presentations and discussions were launched by our Event Chair, Luis E. Raez, MD FACP FCCP, Member of the GRACE Board of Directors, President of the Florida Society of Clinical Oncology (FLASCO), and Chief Scientific Officer & Medical Director at Memorial Cancer Institute.
This day-long event featured top oncologists in their field, presenting the most current and emerging information in targeted therapies for patients and caregivers living with lung cancer.
