Upcoming Broadcasts

The National Institutes of Health has announced a panel of experts to steer President Obama's Precision Medicine Initiative. With the President's recent announcement of a $215 million investment to advance precision medicine research, the U.S. is leading the way in this evolving field. Precision medicine has been defined as delivering the right treatments at the right time – to the right person. This is especially important in cancer treatment. Today, the standard of cancer care may seem like a ?one-size-fits-all? approach. However, in the emerging field of precision medicine, genomic testing is enabling physicians to take the next step in providing personalized treatment based on an individual's genetic makeup and other factors. This treatment methodology has the potential to significantly enhance accuracy, timing and efficacy of cancer care and improve patient outcomes. Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), a national network of cancer hospitals, is leading the way in introducing precision medicine to cancer patient care by launching the Centers for Advanced Individual Medicine in May. This intersection of medicine, science and patient care offers clinicians a new tool and provides one of the greatest opportunities for new medical breakthroughs in treatment. Maurie Markman, MD, renowned clinical oncologist and President of Science and Medicine at CTCA's Eastern Regional Medical Center will be available for interviews to discuss the emergence of precision medicine, its benefits for people with cancer and its overall impact on cancer care. He will also elaborate on CTCA's approach to providing these services to patients in need through the Centers for Advanced Individual Medicine.
