Multi-omics Online Webinar 2: Multi-Omics to Understand Health and Disease

About this event

The invention of single-cell and spatial multi-omic approaches gave us the ability to interrogate diseases at an unprecedented resolution. However, using these advanced technologies creates large, complex datasets that require careful integration and analysis. This field is in its infancy. Progress is swift. To get the most out of your multi-omics analysis, it's important to stay right up-to-date with the latest developments, from the people who are operating at the leading edge of multi-omics research.

This webinar series will:

  • Help you build a holistic picture using single-cell and spatial multi-omics approaches
  • Show you how to dissect complex diseases and pinpoint causative changes using multi-omics approaches
  • Showcase examples of how big pharma companies are using multi-omics for drug discovery

Plus, each session will include live Q&A with the speakers.

** Please note, by registering for webinar one, you will automatically receive access to subsequent webinars in the series. **

Multi-Omics to Understand Health and Disease

Tuesday 24 January at 3 pm GMT/4 pm CET/10 am EDT

Researchers are increasingly turning to multi-omics to better connect phenotype to genotype and variant to function in the context of health and disease. By deconstructing diseases using multi-omics, we can deduce the pathways that are involved in disease – unlocking insights that can influence our ability to intercept disease onset. In this webinar, we will seek to understand the intricate changes that cause disease in cells.

Talk 1: Using single-cell multi-omics to investigate the immune response to COVID-19

Emily Stephenson, Senior Research Associate, Newcastle University

Talk 2: Joint profiling of multi-omics within the same DNA molecules

Yaping Liu, Assistant Professor, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center

Multi-Omics in Target Discovery

Tuesday 31 January at 3 pm GMT/4 pm CET/10 am EDT

Producing successful drugs that hit the market is dependent on a better understanding of disease biology. With plenty of omics data to hand, how can we integrate these datasets to get the deepest insights, faster? In this webinar, we will showcase data analysis examples from pharma using multi-omics for drug discovery.

Talk 1: Multi-omics in drug discovery

Philippe Sanseau, Senior Director of Computational Biology and Senior Fellow, GSK

Talk 2: Multi-omics approaches to inform disease mechanism and drug target identification

Andrew Jarnuczak, Associate Principal Scientist, AstraZeneca
