Webinar 1: Exploiting the cancer genome and beyond for therapeutic intervention

Tuesday 11th October at 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EDT

This webinar will explore utilising the cancer genome and beyond to treat each tumour individually.

Presentations:

  • Beyond Nucleic Acids: Adding Proteomics and Phosphoproteomics to Multi-omic Studies of Drug Resistance
    • Karin Rodland, Director of Precision Medicine Innovation, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
  • Detection of mutations in matched FFPE and cfDNA samples
    • Han Wei, Staff Applications Scientist, Beckman Coulter
  • Exploiting the cancer epigenome for therapeutic intervention
    • Kunal Rai, Associate Professor of Genomics Medicine, MD Anderson Cancer Center
  • Multi-omics and AI for precision oncology
    • Altuna Akalin, Group Leader, Head of Bioinformatics & Omics Data Science Platform, Max Delbrück Center

Webinar 2: Insights into clonal evolution and tumour heterogeneity

Tuesday 18th October at 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EDT

This webinar will explore the role of clonal evolution during tumour growth and metastasis, with a focus on the latest single-cell and spatial analysis in the field. We provide insights into the heterogeneous nature of tumours; into the plasticity exhibited by tumours as they develop; and into how we can take advantage of these pathways to deliver personalised treatments.

Presentations:

  • Next Generation Spatial Genomic Tools for Uncovering Tumor Heterogeneity
    • Fei Chen, Core Institute Member, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
  • Single-cell multi-omics allows functional characterization of structural variants in leukemia
    • Jan Korbel, Head of Data Science, EMBL

Webinar 3: Unravelling the genetics of the tumour microenvironment

Tuesday 25th October at 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EDT

This webinar will provide critical insights into the genetics underlying the tumour microenvironment and its continual crosstalk with cancer cells. We focus on the latest computational biology analysis to understand these tumour ecosystems and how these could be manipulated for therapeutic benefit.

Presentations:

  • Hunting clones with big data
    • Sagi Abelson, Principal Investigator, Ontario Institute for Cancer Research
  • Multi-omics description and network-based modelling of the tumour microenvironment
    • Vera Pancaldi, Senior Researcher, Cancer Research Center of Toulouse
  • Genomic and digital pathology approaches to elucidate the tumour microenvironment of plastic cells
    • Maria Secrier, Assistant Professor in Computational Biology, UCL Genetics Institute, University College London
