The annual GIST and Sarcoma Cancer Research Conference, organized by the GIST Cancer Research Fund, serves as an invaluable forum for patients and their families to hear about the latest advances in the field from scientists and clinicians at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI).
Last year’s event, which was held in April, was no exception. More than a dozen investigators, physicians, and caregivers at the leading edge of research and care from both BWH and DFCI gathered at the conference to share the latest findings, clinical trial updates, and therapeutic advances with patients, which provide them with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their own treatment strategies. Below is a brief synopsis of just a few of the many research highlights from the day’s presentations.
