The Annual Fetterman Lecture

“Malignant Gastrointestinal Neuroectodermal Tumor as a Paradigm of Oncogenic Molecular Promiscuity”

Eduardo Zambrano, MD, MS
Professor of Pathology and of Pediatrics
Vice Chair of Pathology for Pediatric Pathology
Stanford University Medical Center
Associate Medical Director of Pathology and Clinical Laboratories for Pediatrics
Stanford Children’s Health/Stanford Health Care
Chief of Pathology, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital

Brief Summary of Lecture:
Dr. Zambrano will review the clinical, histopathological, ultrastructural, molecular and historical features of Malignant Gastrointestinal Neuroectodermal Tumor (GNET) and the features of GNET with other clinico-pathologically diverse tumors, which share similar molecular rearrangements with GNET. He will explain the basis underlying dissimilar phenotypes in tumors sharing similar genotypic rearrangements and the concept of molecular promiscuity utilizing GNET as a model for this phenomenon.
