Our precision oncology program

Precision medicine is a personalized approach to treating a patient based on his or her individual genetic makeup. While traditional methods treat cancer by disease type, precision oncology uses advanced genomic (DNA) sequencing to identify which specific genes are expressed in the patient’s cancer cells and how they might respond to different therapies. That enables our oncology team to tailor an individual’s treatment to the particular cancer mutations.

We know that every single cancer patient is unique. By connecting with our extraordinary cancer team, you can help the precision oncology program foster a new reality where every single cancer patient’s treatment is just as unique as they are.
