Molecular Imaging May Help Tailor Breast Cancer Therapies

August 13, 2015

Although many drugs are under study for patients with metastatic breast cancer, there is a pressing need to establish methods of predicting response and improving drug delivery, and researchers are looking toward molecular imaging techniques to help reach those goals, according to Pamela Munster, MD, a specialist in developmental therapeutics.

Munster spoke about these research priorities with a sense of urgency during a recent presentation at the 14th Annual International Congress on the Future of Breast Cancer, which Physicians’ Education Resource hosted on July 16-18 in Huntington Beach, California. Munster, a professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), leads the Developmental Therapeutics Program at UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.
