Thursday 6th, 13th and 20th July
All webinars run at 3pm BST / 4pm CEST / 10am EDT
Genomics is transforming our understanding of cancer. Recent advances in high-throughput sequencing and other omics technologies are now allowing researchers and drug developers to interrogate the cancer genome like never before with seemingly uncapped potential.
The latest, high-resolution, single-cell and spatial technologies are providing a new wealth of information regarding the malignant functioning of the tumour microenvironment. Whilst the latest genomics technologies are proving instrumental in advancing our understanding of cancer heterogeneity, evolution and immuno-oncology supporting the development of new targeted therapies.
This Cancer Genomics webinar series will fill you in on the latest methods being used to investigate the cancer genome.
Registrants for this series will gain a unique insight into how these methods are enhancing our understanding of cancer biology and ultimately triggering new discoveries.
The webinar series outline is below. Please note, that by registering for the first webinar in the series you will automatically gain access to all subsequent webinars.

Thursday 6th July at 3pm BST / 4pm CEST / 10am EDT
The tumour microenvironment (TME) is a major source of cancer heterogeneity with a significant influence on the development, progression and treatment of cancer. Therefore, probing the TME has become an increasingly popular avenue to explore for identifying new disease pathways, new therapeutic vulnerabilities, and ultimately new drugs.
Join us to learn how the latest methods are being used to map the tumour microenvironment and how this is arming scientists with new therapeutic targets.
- Single Cell Classification of Tumour Microenvironments in Pan-Cancer Settings
- Sagi Abelson, Principal Investigator, Ontario Institute of Cancer Research
- Cherry-Niche : a tool to “de-construct” the Tumour Microenvironment and functionally characterise the tumour niche
- Luigi Ombrato, Lecturer and Group Lead, Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University London
Thursday 13th July at 3pm BST / 4pm CEST / 10am EDT
By studying the evolutionary history of tumours, scientists can uncover the genomic driving forces responsible for cancer onset and progression. This allows researchers to discover new personalised therapies, overcome resistance and even forecast the evolution of disease…
This webinar will show you how understanding cancer evolution and the origins of heterogeneity will allow you to identify new cancer drivers.
