Physicians from Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey participate in the Genomics and Cancer Risk Roundtable at the 2007 Governor’s Conference on Effective Partnering in Cancer Research. The panel took place June 6, 2007. 

The panel was moderated by Joseph R. Bertino, who was interim director of Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey at the time of this recording.

Participants of the roundtable include Kimberly Ranieri of Rutgers Cancer Institute, David August of Rutgers Cancer Institute, Susan Brooks of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Judy Garber of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Paul Miller of University of Washington, Timothy Rebbeck of University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Deborah Toppmeyer of Rutgers Cancer Institute, and Xangpu Xu of Weill Cornell Medical College.

“What we’re going to do in this session is place today’s scientific and ethics discussion into a clinical context,” Bertino said. “We have chosen to discuss a hypothetical case of a family in which breast cancer has been identified.”
