This session will provide an introduction into pharmacogenomics, how it is currently used in standard of care, and what the research pipeline looks like. Speakers will highlight what issues there are in initiating or progressing research, whether there are disparities in EDI to explore, and how we ensure uptake/national roll out. The discussion will focus on how we might move towards a world where we consider genomically predicting toxicity alongside cancer response, especially in a field where combination treatments are being explored with the potential for additional adverse toxicity. By the end of the session, delegates will learn about new opportunities and ideas to form new collaborations in this field.
