Event Details

Yale Center Beijing and the Shanghai Jiao Tong University-Yale Joint Center for Biostatistics jointly invite you to a discussion with Dr. Dongfeng Tan, Professor at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Yale H.S. '98.

Event Description

Cancer is a universal problem. Its prevention, early detection and clinical treatment are major tasks for our generation and beyond, as is raising general public awareness thereof. While rapid advances in molecular and genotyping technology are enabling the formulation of precision drugs for cancer management, a more humanitarian, multidisciplinary approach is also essential for achieving an optimum outcome for patients: prolonged lifespan, increased quality of life, and a greater sense of contentment and psychological well-being. Increasingly detailed analyses of human genetic variation, made possible by a new generation of sequencing techniques combined with big data analysis, present opportunities for a better scientific understanding of cancer as well as for developing and implementing comprehensive new strategies and modes of personalized medicine. They also present a number of practical challenges. Dr. Tan will explore these challenges and opportunities with examples from ongoing studies.


The language of the event will be Chinese.
