Event description

Description

Organised by Australian Genomics, with the support of The Centre for Cancer Biology (An alliance between SA Pathology & the University of South Australia), the Garvan Institute, the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) and the University of Melbourne, this free one-day workshop is aimed at exploring current and emerging techniques for assessing the impact of genomic changes in cancer. The workshop is open to researchers and clinicians with an interest in understanding and collaborating in Australian cancer functional genomics initiatives.

The workshop will pose the question of how approaches such as saturation mutagenesis, PDX, iPS models, organoid culture, transcriptomics, high-throughput live cell imaging, pharmacogenomics, metabolomics and bioinformatic modelling, among others, can be used to more efficiently harness genomics to improve outcomes for cancer patients.

Dr Lea Starita from the Department of Genome Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA will be presenting the Shendure lab’s multiplexed functional analysis of genetic variants.

Suggested Workshop Focus Areas
• What are the major hurdles in cancer functional genomics?
• What are the collaborative research initiatives that will advance the field?
• Which research tools and infrastructure are required to facilitate these efforts?

All invitees are welcome to submit workshop suggestions or abstracts for case studies to:
enquiries@genomicssa.org


Preliminary program 10 am - 4.30 pm
Session 1 - An update on Australian Genomics Cancer Flagships in 2017-2018
Session 2 - Functional Genomics Case Studies
Breakout session - Collaborative Initiatives for Functional Analysis of Cancer Genomics

Workshop attendees are invited to dinner and drinks after the workshop. The workshop and dinner are provided by our sponsors, but please register via the button above. Note that attendance is limited to researchers and clinicians with a working interest in cancer functional genomics.

Register soon before places run out!
