Emerging and Evolving Biomarkers: Recent Findings, Laboratory Considerations, and Clinical Implications

The extraordinary advancements made over the past several years in the clinical management of cancer have ushered in a new era of optimism for those afflicted with many cancer types.  However, these advancements have also created a highly complex environment for healthcare providers and diagnostic laboratory personnel.  With the range of clinically informative biomarkers, the types of tests to detect these biomarkers, and the resulting clinical implications constantly expanding and becoming more complex, it has become increasingly burdensome for healthcare professionals to keep pace.

This series will efficiently describe emerging and evolving biomarkers in a series of live webcasts that will be structured to provide a consistent framework in which to consider the application of new information on specific biomarkers.

Each live webcast will feature:

  • 15-20 minutes of a scientific overview of recent and relevant research on the biomarker;
  • 15-20 minutes covering the laboratory considerations for the testing approach to each biomarker;
  • 15-20 minutes of discussion on the clinical implications of biomarker use.

After broadcast, each webinar will be posted on the AMPEDTM online Learning Management System as 1. A complete presentation with pre- and post-tests plus available continuing education credit and 2. A series of short learning modules that can be reviewed based on need and interest in the science, laboratory applications, and/or clinical implications of each marker. See below for links.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Describe the biological principles that underlie the pathogenicity of each biomarker, including the cellular signaling pathways and cellular processes involved.
  • Discuss the appropriate technical approaches and platforms for molecular diagnostic testing for each biomarker.
  • Outline the strengths and limitations of described testing approaches.
  • Apply biomarker information so as to order appropriate testing and interpret biomarker status results within a clinical context.
