As tumor mutational burden (TMB) is gaining traction as a predictive biomarker for immunotherapy, the challenge of reporting TMB back to the treating oncologists and patients in an informative way still exists. In this webinar, we will discuss strategies of implementing TMB in the clinical laboratory, how different TMB values reported from various assays compare to each other, and how to communicate the results in a clear way.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe challenges and opportunities in the implementation of TMB testing in the clinical laboratory. 
  • Discuss the various ways by which TMB can be reported back to the clinicians and patients
