OncoSET Precision Medicine

The Power to Deliver Personalized Therapies

Designed to provide personalized evaluations and customized treatment plans for cancer patients, the Lurie Cancer Center OncoSET precision medicine program uses genomic sequencing and sophisticated molecular analysis to identify precisely tailored therapies and clinical trials for our patients. This breakthrough program is transforming the way we practice medicine, targeting cancer that is not responsive to standard treatment.

  • Sequence: Identifying the exact gene mutation that predisposes individual's various cancers through DNA (genomic)
  • Evaluate: Determining the best cancer treatment plan by analyzing the genetic makeup of malignant tumors
  • Treat: Analyzing family genetic history to help identify patterns, using pharmacogenomics to select the best drug therapy and dosage based on the patient's genes

By developing individualized cancer treatment options our dynamic team is able to identify precisely tailored therapies and clinical trials for our patients.
