Dr. Richard Baird
Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre
Dr. Baird is an academic medical oncologist at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre. He has established a portfolio of early phase clinical trials available to breast cancer patients in the East of England and beyond. There is a high proportion of investigator-initiated studies - some run from Cambridge and others run by collaborators across the UK. He has particular research interests in: precision medicine trials / matched molecular therapies; the development of liquid biopsies to improve treatment selection; novel drug-radiotherapy combinations; and in novel therapeutic strategies for patients with brain metastases.
Update on Precision Medicine Approaches to Treat Metastatic Breast Cancer
In recent decades, tremendous progress has been made in understanding the molecular basis of breast cancer. For some cancer subtypes, targets have been identified which - when treated with the right targeted therapy - have yielded major improvements in clinical outcomes for patients. Dr. Baird will discuss current precision medicine approaches to the treatment of metastatic breast cancer, taking into account the challenges of cancer heterogeneity and drug resistance.
