Principles and considerations for Tumor Mutational Burden (TMB) testing

sponsored by Illumina

The identification of biomarkers for the safe and effective use of targeted therapies is emerging as a key part of a cancer patient’s journey. With an increasing number of targeted therapies available, oncologists need comprehensive genomic tools to identify which drugs should be given to a specific patient.

In this webinar, Albrecht Stenzinger will discuss the principles of using next generation sequencing (NGS) to identify the number of genetic alterations in a tumor (called tumor mutational burden or TMB). As an early adopter for using TMB in translational cancer research, Dr. Stenzinger brings valuable insights and considerations for laboratories interested in implementing TMB measurement using NGS.
