Oncologists and other clinicians who treat patients with sarcoma have generally adopted molecular profiling technologies offering insight into the molecular underpinning of all types of sarcoma. Considering the challenges of managing these tumor types, understanding these molecular alterations is critical to incorporating newly approved and emerging targeted agents, including immunotherapies. Yet, translating these findings into clinical applications can be challenging. Determining which potential biomarkers and/or druggable mutations in sarcoma that benefit patients is instrumental in improving patient outcomes. Oncologists need greater understanding and insight into the foundational genomic discoveries that underly the use of targeted entities.

Tumor Board Tuesdays is a regularly scheduled, Twitter-based case discussion forum led by expert faculty exploring cases in various solid tumor malignancies. The series will focus on practice application in the clinic. Experts will present recent data and focus on realistic case examples. The advantage to this format is the ability to comment and receive feedback from the experts.


This activity is designed to meet the needs of medical, surgical and radiation oncologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and other healthcare providers involved in treatment and management of patients with sarcoma.


Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:
