Speaking on tumor genotyping, CTCs and novel therapeutics for breast cancer

Dr Bardia is involved in the clinical development of tumor genotyping as well as circulating tumor cells (CTCs) to facilitate accurate diagnosis, therapy selection, and real-time monitoring of breast cancer. His research on molecular changes in CTCs in metastatic breast cancer has elucidated the role of epithelial-mesenchymal transition and has provided proof-of-principle that ex-vivo CTC culture and molecular drug testing is feasible in breast cancer. Dr Bardia is also the principal investigator of several clinical trials investigating the role of targeted therapy combinations for breast cancer, such as the development of the first antibody drug conjugate (ADC) sacituzumab govitecan which was approved for the treatment of patients with metastatic triple negative breast cancer.
