Cancer therapeutics in the 'omics' era: moving towards practical application in the NHS

Moving towards practical application in the NHS


A workshop was held in London on 9 March 2004 to evaluate the current status of the cancer genomics field, to identify those areas closest to clinical implementation and to consider progress and potential barriers to the successful translation of this technology into clinical practice in the NHS. The workshop brought together scientific and clinical experts in cancer genomics and oncology with policy makers and others including representatives from the Department of Health and other funding bodies, and the UK Genetics Knowledge Parks.
