EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMES: DNA DAMAGE RESPONSE (DDR) AND PARP INHIBITION IN ONCOLOGY


DDR and PARP inhibitors are complex therapeutic strategies. These educational programmes are developed by a multidisciplinary group of international clinician and scientist experts in DDR and PARP inhibition, to enable healthcare professionals around the world to increase their understanding of DDR and PARP inhibition and provide the best possible care to their patients.


The Steering Committee:

Dr. Judith Balmaña, Prof. Simon Boulton, Dr. Robert L. Coleman, Dr. Rebecca Dent, Prof. Charlie Gourley, Prof. Jonathan A. Ledermann, Prof. Sibylle Loibl, Dr. Ursula Matulonis, Dr. Yeon Hee Park, Prof. Eric Pujade-Lauraine, Dr. Violeta Serra, Dr. Neal Shore
