Topic: Radioligand Therapy for Advanced Prostate Cancer
Evan Ya-Wen Yu, MD is a medical oncologist who treats prostate, bladder, and testicular cancer. He’s passionate about searching for the next wave of cancer treatments—targeted agents with greater cancer specificity and fewer side effects. His respect and compassion for people undergoing cancer treatment were already in place but deepened when his father developed bladder cancer. Now he’s dedicated to strengthening the links between clinical care and laboratory research so the prognosis for patients gets better and better.
His presentation on radioligand therapy, Lu-PSMA-617, will explain the workings and implications of the latest advance in prostate cancer treatment.
