TUCSON, Ariz., March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For millions of patients, personalized healthcare, or fitting the right treatments to patients based on an individual's particular genetic make-up, means the difference between life and death.

The 2013 Symposium will focus on the latest advancements in personalized healthcare including new technologies that enhance patient diagnosis, understanding mechanisms of disease resistance, and the pathology of DNA repair— along with the latest findings in specific types of cancers including colon, breast, lung, prostate, cervical, ovarian, and melanoma.
