TREATMENT FOR OVARIAN CANCER

One of the most exciting things emerging in the biomedical fields currently is the idea of personalized medicine. Given a patient’s genetic makeup and risk factors, can we optimize treatment regimens to maximize impact on a patient’s prognosis and survival? Some key questions in this area include:

  • What is the biological basis for treatment resistance?

  • What combinations of mutations are more/less likely to respond to treatment?

  • How do various cell models respond to common chemotherapies?

  • Does genetic predisposition (e.g. BRCA mutations) play a role in treatment outcomes?
