Development of Gene Signatures in Triple-negative Breast Cancer & Complementary Genetic Analytical Platforms for Accurate Diagnosis

Two Sessions From the 2019 Joint Annual Meeting (June 24, 2019)
Development of Gene Signatures in Triple-negative Breast Cancer
Presented by Joseph Pinto, PhD 
Triple-negative breast cancer is an aggressive malignancy with limited opportunity of targeted therapy due to the lack of molecular targets. In this presentation, several gene signatures developed to predict the outcome of this disease will be reviewed.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to

  1. Define Gene signatures and breast cancer subtypes
  2. Summarize the gene signatures developed for triple-negative breast cancer
  3. Describe methodologies to develop gene signatures

Complementary Genetic Analytical Platforms for Accurate Diagnosis
Presented by Arturo Anguiano, MD, FACMG
This session will include several cases where the integration of existing genetic and genomic platforms are complementary and valuable to achieve an accurate diagnosis.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to
  1. Categorize various genetic analytical platforms with their scope and limitations
  2. Identify some clinical scenarios where the use of two or more analytical platforms is important for an accurate diagnosis.
  3. Summarize results of complementary analytical platforms
