The State of Solid Tumor Biopsies: Innovative approaches to address and understand limited pediatric solid tumor samples and data
The annual CureSearch Summit serves as a unique platform for driving critical stakeholder collaborations to accelerate the pace of pediatric oncology drug development. The 2021 CureSearch Summit is a series of four virtual sessions focused on addressing the relative paucity of available pediatric cancer tissue and data. This outcome-driven meeting will provide resources to the pediatric cancer community aimed at increasing biopsy use and data sharing to support and accelerate research in the field.
The white papers resulting from these sessions will provide an overview of the session discussion, highlight benefits and challenges to implementation of increased biopsy acquisition and data sharing in the pediatric cancer space, and identify future actions to address the challenges and increase pediatric-specific therapy development.
