The Case Comprehensive Cancer Center Angie Fowler Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Research Initiative presents “Innovators in AYA Cancer: Driving Science and Policy toward a Brighter Future for Teens and Young Adults with Cancer,” November 14-2019. This symposium will engage physicians, practitioners, advocacy organizations, patients and survivors, their families and caregivers in a conversation about the steps being taken to improve outcomes and address challenges specific to cancer in the AYA population. National leaders and innovators in research focused on cancer affecting the AYA population will highlight strategies designed to enhance our understanding of the biology of AYA cancers, particularly sarcomas and other rare cancers, selected treatment modalities and clinical trial objectives for cancers common to AYA patients including specific advances in immunotherapy, targeted tumor-based therapy, and efforts focused on survivorship.
This two-day national symposium addresses recent advances in the field and should be an exciting forum for discussion and debate on the current understanding of cancer and inflammation
This year, our faculty will profile and discuss the clinical and technical advances, promising clinical trials data, national guidelines and key controversies in the management of breast cancer, lung cancer, gastrointestinal malignancies, genitourinary malignancies, dermatologic malignancies, hematologic malignancies, and gynecologic cancers.
