Keystone Symposia welcomes the global scientific community and aims to connect researchers within and across disciplines to accelerate the advancement of biomedical and life sciences. This form may be used for scientists from low- and middle-income countries of all career stages to determine eligibility and request free access to scientific content presented during recent eSymposia events. If eligible, you will be sent an access code for the On Demand content of the eSymposia event(s) of interest.
The discovery of genomic and epigenetic alterations in individual cancers has led to a plethora of precision medicine innovations and therapeutic successes in oncology. Accordingly, cancer treatments have migrated away from the “one size fits all” approach. However, even as precision medicine is becoming more multi-disciplinary, progress is still hindered by insufficient collaboration between basic researchers, drug development programs, and physician scientists with broad expertise across cancer biology, genomics and other relevant fields.
Therefore, this conference will bring together diverse experts from academic, pharma/biotech, medical and government sectors to discuss current challenges and future directions in precision oncology. In particular, the meeting will foster crosstalk between clinicians, cancer biologists and genomic scientists to identify and address key knowledge gaps that limit the advancement of new precision therapies. This conference program will cover topics such as novel genomic insights, therapeutically promising mechanisms and cancer drug targets, recent translational breakthroughs, and the incorporation of new diagnostic tools as companions to new precision treatments.
The program will emphasize leading-edge advances in “reverse translation” technologies, such as liquid biopsies and single cell genomics, in addition to innovative, first-in-class approaches to novel therapeutics. Ultimately, the goal of the conference is to forge new collaborations across scientific and clinical boundaries, to advance the next generation of precision medicines against cancer.

This new virtual meeting format came out of difficult circumstances, but your commitment to scientific progress is what inspired us to launch Keystone eSymposia. In these virtual meetings, we are capturing the same innovative essence of our in-person meetings that you've all created as a scientific community. Here, Debbie Johnson, our CEO, explains how we're going to do that.
