Update on Precision Medicine Approaches to Treat Metastatic Breast Cancer

In recent decades, tremendous progress has been made in understanding the molecular basis of breast cancer. For some cancer subtypes, targets have been identified which - when treated with the right targeted therapy - have yielded major improvements in clinical outcomes for patients. Dr. Baird will discuss current precision medicine approaches to the treatment of metastatic breast cancer, taking into account the challenges of cancer heterogeneity and drug resistance.
