Solid tumor webinar hub

Solid tumor events and webinars

The Global Solid Tumor Summit 2023 united cancer researchers, oncologists, data specialists and cancer survivors. The experts shared their experience and insights in solid tumor research and diagnostic testing and addressed some of the challenges encountered in biomarker testing. Presentations also showcased advances in technology bringing hope for future progress – all in pursuit of a life for every patient.
New frontiers in biomarker testing and cancer patient profiling

Biomarker testing has the potential to support both the diagnosis and monitoring of solid tumors, with the possibility to facilitate targeted treatments for individual patients. To realize that potential, testing must use the right sample type, for the right biomarker and at the right time. So, how do we achieve this? Watch Prof. Umberto Malapelle of the University Federico II of Naples, Italy explore solid tumor biomarker testing and how new technologies are driving this forward.

Impact of molecular testing in patients with solid tumors

In this insightful presentation from Dr. Ernest Nadal of the Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO), Barcelona, Spain, you will hear about the effect molecular testing has on real-world clinical cases of patients with solid tumors.
