Event description

Description


This workshop is designed for experienced researchers and clinicians with a working interest in understanding and collaborating in the cancer functional genomics space.





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.

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

Workshop Focus Areas

• Developments and new discoveries in cancer functional genomics.
• Moving beyond just genomics to integrative cross-omic studies of human disease.
• Identification of collaborative research initiatives that will advance the field.
• Funding of genomics for the clinic.


The workshop will be held at the new Adelaide Oval, 5 minutes from the Adelaide CBD.


All workshop attendees are also invited to dinner and drinks at restaurant Cliche Exhibition after the workshop. The workshop and dinner are provided courtesy of our sponsors, but please register via the button above. The workshop is open to researchers and clinicians with an interest in understanding and collaborating in Australian cancer functional genomics initiatives.


There are few seats remaining so register soon before places run out!


For those interested in the field (and/or South Australian wines), it may be of interest to note that this workshop directly precedes the 8th Barossa Cell Signalling in Cancer meeting which is to be held on the 14th – 17th November 2017
