Head and Neck Cancer Symposium, Seventh Annual

Miami, FL US
April 28, 2018

Personalized medicine helps doctors learn about a person’s genetic makeup and how his or her tumor grows.  Modern personalized medicine is based on targeted therapy. In targeted therapy, it is essential that information about the altered pathway and the components leading to cancer are available. During this symposium, physicians will discuss the treatment modalities, prognosis and clinical trials associated with head and neck cancer.
