Molecular Pathology and Diagnosis of Cancer (2019)
21st November 2019
Course description from the ACSC website:
A joint initiative of the Wellcome Genome Campus and the Royal College of Pathologists Interspecialty Committee on Molecular Pathology, this course is aimed primarily at trainee pathologists or haematologists. The programme introduces participants to the rapidly evolving field of the genomics and molecular diagnosis of cancer. Clinical scientists in the field of molecular diagnosis are also encouraged to apply.
The course consists of a series of practical, laboratory-based sessions covering current diagnostic methodologies, along with hands-on training in bioinformatic tools for analysis of DNA sequencing data.
In addition, the course will host a number of leading national and international speakers who will give seminars on the molecular pathology of a several common cancers, such as breast, colorectal, leukaemia, familial cancers and others.
The programme will also include talks and demonstrations of next generation sequencing platforms (including the latest developments in genomic technologies) as well as discussions on the ethical, societal and practical implications of introducing genome-wide genetic analyses to the clinic.
It is recommended to download the video slideshow MP4 file to see all slides, as a number of videos are included in the presentation.
