Molecular Tumour Board

The VCCC Molecular Tumour Board (MTB) is a multidisciplinary style forum that provides opinion on the clinical implications of molecular pathology test results of tumours.

Each case is discussed on an individual, de-identified basis. Most MTB meetings also feature an educational presentation.

Discussion and assessment of molecular pathology results

The MTB is convened by Dr Stephen Luen, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, with an expert group comprised of clinical and scientific staff from across the VCCC providing opinion on each case.  

The MTB educational and research presentations provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about personalised medicine. CPD points are available for meeting attendance. The MTB welcomes referrals from any clinician or multi-disciplinary team from VCCC members and collaborators.

Clinicians, scientists and students (from any organisation) are welcome to attend the meetings, which are held on Fridays 2.45pm - 4.00pm.

Case submissions

We welcome cases from clinicians whose patients have had molecular pathology testing performed as part of clinical care or research. Experts will provide advice and opinion regarding the clinical implications of the molecular pathology findings. Wherever possible, referring clinicians will also be advised on appropriate available clinical trials.

To submit a case to the MTB, please complete the MTB case form template and send via email to Emma Petrie, Program Manager - Translational Research, ejpetrie@unimelb.edu.au
