Front Line Genomics invites you to their event

Cancer Genomics ONLINE - Webinar 1: Oncogenesis and tumour evolution.

About this event

Genomics has already helped to elucidate the mechanisms of cancer evolution and metastasis. From the development of targeted therapies to diagnosis, genomics is also influencing clinical care.

However, genomics is not being utilised to its full potential. Join us for this 3-part virtual series where we will dissect current research that is shaping our understanding and guiding the next era of cancer therapeutics.

Webinar 1: Oncogenesis and tumour evolution.

Tuesday 13th July, 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EDT

This webinar will focus on the research that hunts to find oncogenes and traces tumour evolution in the hope to better understand, prevent, and treat cancer.

Measuring cancer evolutionary dynamics using genomics – Trevor Graham, Professor of Cancer Evolution, Barts Cancer Institute, QMUL

Genomic evolution of cancer models: perils and opportunities – Uri Ben-David, Assistant professor, Tel Aviv University

Matching cell lines with cancer type and subtype of origin via mutational, epigenomic, and transcriptomic patterns – Fran Supek, Group Leader, Genome Data Science Laboratory, IRB Barcelona

Unravelling the inheritance of plastic states in cancer and beyond. One cell at a time – Maximiliano Portal, CRUK Institute Fellow, Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute

Webinar 2: Clinical applications of cancer genomics

Tuesday 20th July, 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EDT

Our understanding of the genetic basis and genomic evolution of cancer has already changed the way we approach cancer management. This webinar will focus on the clinical applications of cancer genomics.

Count Me In, partnering with patients to accelerate discoveries in cancer - Corrie Painter, Deputy Director, Count Me In, Broad Institute

Taking genomics to the clinic: Two TCGA examples – Jean Claude Zenklusen, Director, TCGA, NIH

Mutational signatures: from molecular mechanism to clinical application – Xueqing Zou, Postdoctoral fellow, University of Cambridge

Single cell multimodal and spatially resolved gene expression analysis to dissect the tumor and immune contexture - Hannes Arnold, Senior Science and Technology Advisor, 10x Genomics

Webinar 3: Opportunities at the intersection of cancer genomics and immunotherapy

Tuesday 27th July, 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EDT

Manipulating the body’s natural immune system holds promise for alternatives to traditional surgery, chemotherapy, or radiotherapy in many situations.

This webinar will focus on the intersection of genomics and immunotherapy and highlight the opportunities for immunogenomics to influence cancer research and care.

Shared tumor antigens as immunotherapy targets: an in-silico investigation of the immunogenic potential of recurrent cancer drug-resistance mutations – Marco Punta, Immunogenomics lab coordinator, I.R.C.C.S. Ospedale San Raffaele

Clinical study design and considerations for genomics in Immuno-Oncology Drug Development – Maggie Cheang, Team Leader, Genomic Analysis of Clinical Trial, ICR
