Debu Tripathy on Using Breast Cancer Tumor DNA to Make Treatment Decisions

Friday, July 22, 2016

Debu Tripathy, MD, chair of the Department of Breast Medical Oncology at University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses the potential for using breast cancer tumor DNA to make treatment decisions.

Talk about this article with nurses and others in the oncology community in the General Discussions Oncology Nursing News discussion group.
