During the recently celebrated 24th Biennial Congress of the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR), 09 – 12 July, Manchester UK, ecancer caught up with VHIO´s Joan Seoane, Director of Translational Research, to discuss multidisciplinary research aimed at better detecting cancer mutations, tracking the evolution of disease, as well as predicting response to therapy.
More specifically, Joan underlines the potential of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) as liquid biopsy for the early diagnosis, prognosis, therapeutic management, and the ´real time´ tracking of brain cancer in a less invasive manner compared to traditional procedures.
