Prof Laura Vant Veer - University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, USA

Prof Veer speaks with ecancer at IMPAKT 2017 about breast cancer characteristics and treatment selection.

She describes 'getting under the hood' of tumour gene expression, which led to the identification of 70 genes which can inform a patient's risk of cancer recurrence, and their suitability for further chemotherapy.

Prof Veer places emphasis on collaboration and education amongst clinicians as a means to develop trial design and protocol, with the goal of bringing the benefits of targeted therapy to a wider patient base.

Mammaprint was discussed at AACR 2016 by Dr Martine Piccart, here.
