The Role of Tissue Acquisition in Advancing Community Precision Oncology

Community cancer centers are fast becoming sites for biomarker testing and precision medicine. As clinical research becomes a larger part of community cancer center operations, strengthening tissue collection procedures and considering the establishment of biospecimen repositories are critical concerns.

Join us for a live discussion on Thursday, December 17, about key issues in high integrity tissue acquisition facing community cancer programs. Expert panelists will share their perspectives and best practices on how much, when, and from which sites tissue and other biopsy samples should be collected, how the goals and aims of tissue acquisition impact precision patient care, and more.
