Webinar: Molecular & Genetic Testing for Lymphoma & CLL Patients
Webinar Date and Time: Wednesday March 22nd, 6 PM EST
For some types of lymphomas, treatment options are highly dependent upon molecular and genetic tests doctors order at the time of diagnosis. This webinar aims to help our lymphoma & CLL community understand what these tests are and the importance of them. Information will also be provided on the scientific background of molecular identification via flow cytometry and fluorescent in situ hybridization.
