    • Appraise the clinical relevance of recent pivotal cancer research results published in peer-reviewed journals or presented at major oncology conferences.
    • Recall ongoing trials in breast, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, lung and select hematologic cancers, and refer appropriate patients for study participation.
    • Incorporate clinical characteristics, logistical factors, tumor biomarkers and single and multigene signatures in the individualization of care for patients with cancer.
    • Educate patients with diverse hematologic cancers and solid tumors about the benefits and risks of new therapeutic agents and strategies.
    • Refine or validate existing cancer treatment algorithms on the basis of new data sets and the perspectives of tumor-specific clinical investigators.
