Building ctMoniTR: Step 1 Questions and Step 2 Goals

Convening Experts to Answer Your Questions from Our Step 1 Data Release

Tuesday, August 25, 2020
12:00 PM EDT – 1:00 PM EDT

Friends of Cancer Research (Friends) wants to thank you for your interest in our important project findings and results during last week’s Virtual Meeting: Do changes in ctDNA reflect response to treatment? We have been honored by the amount of interest in our ctDNA to Monitor Treatment Response (ctMoniTR) project, including many important questions we were unable to discuss during last week’s virtual meeting.

As an exclusive opportunity to interested stakeholders, we want to continue the dialogue. Friends will be hosting a Virtual Q&A in order to:

  • Discuss important questions posed during the last virtual meeting
  • Provide the chance to interact with experts from ctMoniTR and other leaders in ctDNA research
  • Further describe the results of Step 1 and discuss how this sets the stage for Step 2

The following leading experts will be participating live to answer project questions including:

  • Carl Barrett, AstraZeneca
  • Erik Bloomquist, U.S. FDA
  • Darya Chudova, Guardant Health
  • Matthew Hellman, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
  • Roy Herbst, Yale Cancer Center
  • Antje Hoering, Cancer Research and Biostatistics (CRAB)
  • Geoffrey Oxnard, Foundation Medicine
  • Reena Philip, U.S. FDA
  • Nevine Zariffa, NMD Group
  • Qi Xia, Genentech

We hope you’ll use this unique opportunity to learn more about the project, ask additional questions, and become more involved in this discussion as we enter Step 2. ctMoniTR seeks to better understand and establish ctDNA as a monitoring tool for treatment response, providing an easier tool to help determine if a cancer drug is working.
