Learning Objectives

  1. Identify two groups of postmenopausal BRCA1 mutation carriers that differ by histopathological criteria and relate the phenotype to tumor-promoting properties
  2. Identify the utility of transcriptomic analysis of primary patient samples to better characterize tumor differences.
  3. Identify the impact of single cell technologies in ovarian cancer
  4. Demonstrate that tumor-tissue testing represents a reliable, feasible and cost-saving screening-procedure for BRCA mutational status assessment.
  5. Illustrate the complexity of BRCA1 mediated platinum response in ovrian cancer
  6. Describe how homologous recombination gene mutation frequencies compare between USCs and HGSOCs
  7. Identify pertinent deleterious germline mutations present in fallopian tube carcinomas, as they compare to those seen in ovarian and primary peritoneal carcinomas and demonstrate how this had changed over time with the adoption of serial fallopian tube sectioning.
