Tumor Mutational Burden: Diagnostic Innovations and Clinical Implications

While TMB has emerged as a biomarker with potential relevance to many tumor types, significant uncertainty remains regarding the overall utility of TMB testing.  Building on the 2018 webinar series, “Tumor Mutational Burden: Challenges and Opportunities for Improving Cancer Patient Care”, which will be rebroadcast in late May, this new two-part series will provide up-to-date information surrounding TMB testing in the laboratory and utility in clinic.

This upcoming TMB series, slated to focus on diagnostic innovations and clinical implications, will address two issues.  First, it will provide an update on what has evolved in the TMB space within the past year, including testing harmonization efforts and recent data regarding the use of TMB as a predictive biomarker.  Secondly, it will examine the role of TMB testing in the larger landscape of biomarkers that can be used to assess response to immunotherapy. 



To review, please attend the rebroadcast of the full 2018 series on Tuesday, May 21st, 2019 from 1:00-4:30PM Eastern Time. Register here. The agenda is below:
