About CanForum 2023
In recent decades, our understanding of cancer and its architecture has changed dramatically. No longer do we see cancer as something that is associated with a particular body location, but rather as a malfunction in our DNA and immune system that can be identified through genomic testing, then targeted and treated. These treatments are increasingly precise and personalised and, whilst they bring with them the opportunity for better health and survival, they present unique challenges to our traditional health system.
If Australia is to make the most of this revolution, driven by advances in genomic science, it is vital that we move now. Join us as we explore the genomic revolution in cancer and what it means for cancer patients and our broader society.
CanForum 2023 will explore the theme ‘The genomic revolution in cancer – is Australia ready?’
Session 1: 9:30am – 11:00am • Genomics: opportunities for Australian cancer patients
Session 2: 11:30am – 1:00pm • The state of play for genomics in Australia
Session 3: 2:00pm – 3:30pm • Maximising the potential of genomics for all Australians with cancer
