Cancer Genomics ONLINE - Webinar 2: Clinical cancer genomics in 2022 and beyond

About this event

Join us for our latest 3 part webinar series, Cancer Genomics ONLINE to:

  • Explore the multi-layered complexities of tumours and their interactions with their environment using advanced omics technologies.
  • Discover new ways in which cancer genomics is being implemented in the clinic.
  • Learn how epigenetics and methylation signatures are aiding cancer detection.

Webinar 2: Clinical cancer genomics in 2022 and beyond

Tuesday 12th July, 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

Despite the advances in next-generation sequencing, opportunities remain to better utilise genomic capabilities for cancer detection, characterisation, and monitoring.

This webinar will cover:

Improving accuracy and consistency of variant interpretation for cancer susceptibility genes – Alice Garrett, Clinical Research Fellow, Institute of Cancer Research

Lab Automation for Cancer Genomics: Work Smarter – Craig Johnston, Diagnostics & Genomics Lead, Automata

Integrating whole genome sequencing into clinical practice for cancer patients – Alona Sosinsky, Scientific Director of Cancer, Genomics England

Webinar 3: Cancer epigenetics and detecting methylation signatures

Tuesday 19th July, 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

With DNA methylation being long regarded as a hallmark of cancer, recent advances in detection technology have shown great promise in the utility of using methylation status as a tool to diagnose cancer early. However, translating these into the clinic remains slow.

In this webinar, we highlight advances in “going beyond the genome” for cancer diagnostics and address the challenges of widespread clinical utility.

The Promise of Multicancer Early Detection – Eric Klein, Member, Population and Cancer Prevention Program, Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, Case Western Reserve University

DNA methylation age as a biomarker for cancer - Chungho Lau, Research Associate, Imperial College London

Leading the way in target enrichment: Exceptional performance, improved efficiency and rapid customization of targeted methylation sequencing - Bryan N. Höglund, Senior Manager - NGS Business Development, Twist Bioscience

mDETECT, a suite of second generation liquid biopsies for multiple cancers – Christopher Mueller, Professor, Queen's Cancer Research Institute, Queen’s University

Previous webinars in the series:

Webinar 1: Interrogating and targeting the complexities of the cancer genome

Now available on demand

Since the discovery of the “cancer genome,” we have increasingly become aware of its complexities and its interactions with the microenvironment, the immune system, drivers of metastasis and beyond.

In this webinar, we highlight how advanced omics technologies are unravelling the complexities of the cancer genome and beyond; and highlight how these are providing insights that could translate to actionable insights.

Using machine learning to predict driver variants in the human cancer genome – Colin Campbell, Reader in Mathematics for Information Technology, University of Bristol

Spatial CRISPR genomics identifies regulators of the tumor microenvironment – Brian Brown, Director, Icahn Genomics Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Mount Sinai Medical Center

Targeting oncogenic long noncoding RNAs for cancer therapy – Tao Liu, Associate Professor & Group Leader – Gene Dysregulation Group, Children's Cancer Institute Australia, The University of New South Wales
