Friends of Cancer Research aims to better understand the impact of assay variation on clinical outcomes, align standards, and define best practices for tumor mutational burden assessment. Harmonization of methods to quantify TMB will facilitate robust biomarker development and optimize clinical utilization and treatment decision-making.
Listen as Dr. Mark Stewart discusses the role of the TMB in cancer research and the need for harmonization throughout the process.
