Tumor boards are meetings where physicians caring for patients with cancer and other providers meet to discuss specific patients and advise one another on the best treatment plans.
UC San Diego Health and Moores Cancer Center have initiated a new, leading-edge type of tumor board that discusses patients with all types of cancer whose tumors have been analyzed with advanced genomic diagnostic tests. This new Molecular Tumor Board, working with our
Center for Personalized Cancer Therapy, enables us to translate the strong science at UC San Diego Health into recommendations for individual patient treatments.
The Molecular Tumor Board includes expert physicians and world-class scientists, including medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation therapists, researchers, geneticists and pathologists.
