This webinar, hosted by FCF in collaboration with TargetCancer Foundation and Angiosarcoma Awareness, is the third of four webinars in which we explore how precision cancer medicine is being applied to rare cancers.

Precision medicine looks at the genetic and molecular characteristics of a patient’s unique tumor to identify the tumor’s specific weaknesses. Once that level of identification is possible, custom-selected treatments that attack those specific vulnerabilities have great potential to improve patient outcomes.  This particular  webinar will discuss the science and challenges behind the development of different types of targeted therapy and immunotherapy. Key topics and issues to be explored in this webinar will include:

  • Current landscape & challenges
  • Targeted drugs for “challenging” targets
    • Protein kinases
    • Transcription factors
    • Fusion proteins
  • Advanced drug discovery
    • Structure-based drug design
    • Monoclonal antibodies & antibody-drug conjugates
    • Inhibitory RNAs
    • Protein degraders
    • Gene targeting
    • Immune therapies
      • Vaccines
      • Cell therapy
