Precision medicine for breast cancer demands a multidisciplinary approach, says QF expert

A rapidly growing field in cancer care is precision oncology – that is tailored treatment for patients based on their tumor’s genetic signatures. However, treatment based solely on genetics appear to be unsuccessful for many, indicating that there are other factors involved. The question is: How do we make precision medicine more precise?
