Meeting Summary:  The Center for Cancer Genome Discovery (CCGD) organizes annual workshops and symposia on the use of genomic approaches to comprehensively characterize the cancer genome with its opportunities and challenges for individualized (personalized) cancer medicine. Genomic technologies will increasingly be used in generating a profile of cancer alterations for an individual. This profile can be used to diagnose or stratify patients for clinical trials with agents targeted to these specific alterations, thus leading to more effective treatment strategies. The paradigm of personalized cancer medicine cycles through to improve diagnosis and prognosis for each individual patient.
