This course is designed specifically for those new to cancer, or those wishing to refresh their knowledge.

In the first half of the day, Dr Elaine Vickers will provide an overview of the mechanisms of action of chemotherapy, hormone therapy, targeted therapy and immunotherapy.

In the second, she will describe what biomarkers are, where they’re found, how they’re detected, and what they’re used for. Topics include genetic analysis, so-called “virtual biopsies”, and how biomarkers can give both prognostic and predictive information.
