Dr. Dara Aisner Introducing Molecular Pathology & Challenges of Molecular Testing

December 7th, 2012 - by Dr. Jack West

http://blog.lungevity.org/2012/12/07/dr ... r-testing/

As part of our ongoing partnership to improve lung cancer education and patient empowerment, LUNGevity Foundation and GRACE co-sponsored a live program recently with Dr. Dara Aisner, who is a pathologist and the Co-Director of the Molecular Correlates Lab at the University of Colorado. I was very happy to have the opportunity to do this in the form of a back and forth discussion/Q&A session with Dr. Aisner, especially since she’s a great communicator about topics that are very timely but can also be very complex. In the first part of the discussion, which went off into mini-presentations on the questions we covered, she introduces basic concepts of what a pathologist does and what the new field of molecular pathology actually entails.

Here’s the first part, including the video and audio versions of the podcast, as well as the transcript and figures. (Click on the link above to view the video and audio links.)

The second portion of our discussion covered the practical challenges of molecular testing on certain tissues, where to obtain biopsies from, and other current issues that we encounter in real clinical management as we struggle to make molecular testing more routine. Again, here’s the video and audio versions of the podcast, along with the associated transcript and figures.

We’ll finish with a glimpse of the future of molecular testing. That podcast will be posted here very soon.

I hope you find this both interesting and helpful!
