Viruses for Cancer Therapy: A Promising Treatment in Need of a Personalized Approach
August 25, 2020
Stephen Russell, M.D., Ph.D.
The fight against cancer includes the amazing microscopic invaders, oncolytic viruses. A foe of cancer cells, oncolytic viruses can make a difference in the war on cancer through a personalized approach. Join Dr. Stephen Russell as he discusses the value of oncolytic virotherapy in treating cancer.
Ponder the measure of all exposures of an individual during a lifetime, and the interactions with the individual’s genome. When genetics alone cannot explain a disease, we enter the world of exposomes. Join Drs. Gary Miller and Konstantinos Lazaridis as they discuss the current and future state of how environmental exposures we face impact health.
In our world’s fight against cancer and obesity, we need more than a “one-size-fits-all” solution. The development of individualized treatments is critical to the success for those who suffer from cancer and obesity. Join Drs. Marina Walther-Antonio and Andres Acosta as they discuss the role of precision medicine in cancer and obesity.
Artificial Intelligence can individualize medical care well beyond what genomics alone can do. Developments in AI will allow us to move from a reactive and corrective treatment paradigm to one that is preventative, personalized, and curative. Join Drs. Bradley Erickson, Arjun Athreya, and John Kalantari as they discuss the role of technology and AI in driving therapeutic options for patients.
Join Drs. Graham Hatfull, Gina Suh, and Andrew Badley for an engaging discussion on phage therapy and use of engineered phages for mycobacterial infections.
Join Drs. Julia Willett, Gina Suh, and Andrew Badley to learn about the complex interaction between phage and antibiotics in enterococcus faecalis.
