04oct(oct 4)9:00 am06(oct 6)4:00 pmBeyond Cancer Genomics Toward Precision Oncology: A Cell-NCI Functional Genomics Symposium


Event Details

While genomics initiatives have generated large amounts of data, gaining clinically relevant insights from this data is challenging. This symposium will showcase multi-omics approaches to functional characterization of candidate cancer drug targets. Researchers will discuss how deep data analyses and high-throughput approaches are reshaping our understanding of cancer biology and impacting clinical oncology.

The Symposium is organized by Cell Press (Cell and Cancer Cell) and the Cancer Target Discovery and Development (CTD²) Network—an NCI initiative for bridging the knowledge gap between large-scale genomic datasets and the underlying etiology of cancer development, progression, and metastasis. There is a government registration rate for NIH/NCI staff and content will be available online both live and via on-demand archive.

Dr. Daniela S. Gerhard, who sadly and suddenly passed away this summer, was the premier architect of this symposium and on a grander scale, the CTD² Network. In recognition and appreciation of Dr. Gerhard’s immense efforts and dedication to many of NCI’s genomics initiatives, the Symposium will feature a memorial session delivered by Drs. Louis Staudt and Stuart Schreiber.
