Clinical Genomics of NTRK Fusion Detection in Cancer

Genome Webinar

Associate Director, Laboratory for Molecular Pediatric Pathology; Staff Pathologist, Boston Children's Hospital; Instructor of Pathology, Harvard Medical School

This webinar discusses background and clinical genomics of NTRK fusion detection in cancer. NTRK fusions are the focus of new therapeutic options, but clonal and subclonal lesions are notoriously difficult to detect. This webinar provides an overview and background about the increased role of these fusions, and latest trends in diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, as well as a research case study on detection.

Join Dr. Alanna Church of the Laboratory for Molecular Pediatric Pathology and Staff Pathologist at Boston Children's Hospital to learn more about the increasing role of NTRK fusions:

  •  Overview and background of fusion mutations, specifically NTRK 1, 2, and 3
  •  Frequency overview and specificity needed for detection
  •  Overview of research case of utilizing NGS technology in detection.
