Liquid Biopsy ONLINE - Webinar 2: Liquid biopsies to detect, diagnose and monitor cancers

About this event

Join us for Liquid Biopsy ONLINE, a 3 part webinar series, where we explore the technologies behind liquid biopsies, their application and how global collaboration can bring them closer to patients.

Webinar 2: Liquid biopsies to detect, diagnose and monitor cancers

Thursday 16th June, 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EDT

Liquid biopsies can enable the detection and diagnosis of cancer and provide molecular insights into the development of even the rarest of cancers. In this webinar, we will cover the utility of liquid biopsies for cancer detection, diagnosis and monitoring.

Clinical considerations for ctDNA analysis of cancer– Minetta Liu, Consultant, Division of Medical Oncology, Department of Oncology, Mayo Clinic

Liquid biopsies to diagnose and monitor gliomas – Leonora Balaj, Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School

Clinical application of circulating tumor DNA profiling in gastrointestinal stromal tumors – Jason Chan, Consultant Medical Oncologist, National Cancer Centre Singapore

Webinar 3: Searching for a needle in a haystack: isolating rare events in blood

Thursday 23rd June, 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EDT

Detecting and isolating circulating biomarkers in blood has been likened to finding a needle in a haystack. With a lack of trust in the technology, improving the data to support the utility of liquid biopsies is a must.

In this webinar, we will dive into case studies of finding rare cancer biomarkers in the bloodstream, and how this can influence the future of liquid biopsy technologies and their utility.

Analytical Technologies for the Analysis of Liquid Biopsy Samples – Steven Soper, Professor, University of Kansas

New look at blood-lymph liquid biopsy of cancer stem cells in vivo and in vitro – Ekaterina Galanzha, Associate Professor, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences

Custom enrichment for RNA sequencing of liquid biopsies - Jo Vandesompele, Director Scientific Initiative, CellCarta

Webinar 1: PANEL DISCUSSION: Liquid Biopsy: Where are we now?

Now available on demand.

Over a decade since the term liquid biopsy was introduced, we are starting to see the rollout of these non-invasive diagnostic tests into clinics. But we are a long way from saying these are part of routine diagnostic care.

In this webinar, we will bring together global leaders to discuss where we are in our endeavour to bring liquid biopsies to the forefront of care, what we need to overcome to get there, and how we can do this in a collaborative effort.
