Gene profile and response to treatment, Stephen Fodor

Interviewee: Stephen Fodor. Stephen Fodor talks about how an individual's gene expression profile can help determine what therapies might work best. (DNAi Location: Applications > Genes and medicine > Genetic profiling > Stephen Fodor > Gene profile and therapy)

Now at the same time we're beginning to understand some of the signatures that we may see. For example, if we look at a breast cancer sample and we understand that a particular expression profile responds to one treatment and a different expression profile responds to a different treatment, then of course we can start to get into this area of therapeutic monitoring.
