Biomarkers have revolutionized how we treat certain cancers (e.g. breast cancer, medulloblastoma, H&N cancer, etc.), sometimes even providing more prognostic information than traditional measures such as age, stage, grade and performance status. However, clinician uptake of novel biomarkers is poor, largely because of incomplete understanding of the science behind the development of biomarkers and the overwhelming amount of new information each year. This session will attempt to put biomarker development in context, emphasizing the common biomarkers and their development, the use of novel biomarkers today, and the state of the field in the future. Participants will be able to better implement biomarkers in their everyday practice after this session, and understand the rationale behind correlative studies in cooperative group trials, so as to better inform their patients.
