--> Course Biomarkers and Immunomarkers for Pulmonary Tumor Pathology

Biomarkers and Immunomarkers for Pulmonary Tumor Pathology

With this online course we want to emphasize the need for a precise determination of the biomarkers and immunomarkers involved in lung cancer for the selection of the appropriate treatment, or to decide the suitability of the patient to receive a certain treatment.

We are going to review the “state of the art” of the most well-known determinations: we are going to see in depth the new biomarkers and their correct interpretation and how we can adjust the treatment guidelines to each patient.

We also consider the in-depth exploration of new genetic and molecular technologies, and the value that they bring to diagnosis today.

At the end of the course we want the assistant to be able to establish the diagnosis based on the biomarkers and immunomarkers with their adequate interpretation, cut-off points and adequate determination technique, and know how to indicate the aptitude or not of the treatment. >

In an extraordinary way, in this online course each bio or immunomarker will be analyzed by an expert pathologist or molecular biologist (interpretation, quantification, analysis, diagnostic utility) and a professional oncologist (assessment, decision of treatment, targeted therapies, immunotherapy, clinical trials). The objective is to highlight the importance of multidisciplinary team work, fundamental for the precision diagnostic decision and the selection of effective therapy.

The course is designed for pathologists, oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, pulmonologists and hospital molecular biologists.
