At the conclusion of this activity participants will be able to: 1) recall that recent studies have detailed the genomic landscape of primary endometrial cancers, but the evolution of these cancers into metastases has not been characterized; 2) state that endometrial cancer is the most common pelvic gynecological malig­nancy in industrialized countries, partially owing to the obesity epidemic and 3) report that across primary endometrial cancers, 21 new signifi­cantly mutated genes have been identified.
