Date: Sunday 20 - Friday 25 November 2022
Venue: Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton
A joint initiative of the Wellcome Genome Campus and the Royal College of Pathologists, 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 hosts a number of leading national and international speakers who give seminars on the molecular pathology of 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 genetic analyses to the clinic.
