Dr Roberto Salgado speaks to ecancer about the key themes and highlights of the IBCD 2020 meeting held virtually this year.

He says that the key themes of this year’s meeting were different from the years before.

He talks about the pitfalls of biomarker driven research and how a lack of standardised assays can adversely and largely impact academic research, results from clinical trials and patient treatment and prognosis.

He then talks about how this year’s meeting agenda can contribute to the future of cancer research and translational medicine.
