Tumour-specific defects in the DNA damage response network (DDR) not only drive the development of cancer but also present opportunities for therapeutic intervention. In this symposium, we will discuss recent developments in the basic understanding of the DDR, efforts to target the DDR as a therapeutic approach and emerging mechanisms of resistance to DDR inhibitors.
