2022 Rare Cancer Think Tank

Presented by TargetCancer Foundation

Meeting Chairs:
Jennifer Carter, MD, MPH, Sandbox Healthcare, The Blue Venture Fund
John Iafrate, MD, PhD, Massachusetts General Hospital
Razelle Kurzrock, MD, Medical College of Wisconsin

The Think Tank on Advancing Precision Medicine in Rare Cancers is an interactive, one day meeting that unites clinicians, researchers, industry, patient advocates and patients in a unique format to promote collaboration, information sharing, and idea generation. The diverse perspectives of speakers and attendees will allow for a comprehensive discussion of challenges, goals, opportunities and best practices in addressing the needs of patients facing rare cancers.

The Think Tank on Advancing Precision Medicine in Rare Cancers leverages the successful “think tank” model that TargetCancer Foundation has established through over a decade of meetings on other topics, such as gastroesophageal cancers. The Think Tank on Advancing Precision Medicine in Rare Cancers also builds on the progress being made through TargetCancer Foundation’s TCF-001 TRACK study, a nationwide, decentralized, patient-driven clinical trial studying precision medicine in rare cancers, and will feature a mock Molecular Tumor Board meeting featuring members of the TRACK Virtual Molecular Tumor Board.
