2020 Pediatric Grand Rounds | Functional Genomics in High-risk Renal Tumors

Duarte, CA US
December 10, 2020

Therapies for childhood kidney tumors have been limited due to the lack of models and the limited identification of new therapeutic targets. An overview of recent methodologies will generate such models and show how functional genomics can be used to help identify new potential therapies. 

Because of the rarity of renal tumors in children, exposure to cases is limited.  This CME  activity is the evolution of the studies in renal tumors and will enhance the understanding/treatment of these rare tumors. There has been very good progress in many renal tumors with chemotherapy regimens but we have reached a plateau and new molecular targets will allow improved outcome in children with renal tumors just as targeted therapy has improved outcome in adult tumors (e.g. lung cancer).

Target Audience

Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Physicians, Advance Practice Practitioners, staff and research team.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the state of renal tumor biology research.
  • Outline the background of functional genomics and discuss how it leads to targeted therapies for tumors in general. 
  • Identify specific therapy that exploits renal tumor biology based upon functional genomics. 
  • Outline the various types of cultural diversities (gender, age, race, religion, culture, etc.) that relate to demographics, diagnosis and treatment.
