Organised by Haematopathology Laboratory, Tata Memorial Centre
Workshop: 25th February to 27th February 2019.
Meeting: 28th February to 1st March 2019
Workshop: ACTREC, Navi Mumbai.
Meeting: Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai
In the last decade, due to advancements in sequencing technologies we have gained a deeper understanding of the cancer genome. We now know that haematological malignancies are highly heterogeneous due to gene mutations, copy number alterations and gene fusions. This knowledge has led to changes in classification, prognostication, monitoring and therapy of blood cancers. The current understanding is that no patient is truly identical, in fact, the typical patient may not really exist. We have come full circle from protocol-based therapy to individualizing treatment as per the patient’s disease biology. The era of personalized medicine is truly upon us. This meeting will focus on recent advancements of next generation sequencing technologies and their application to hematological malignancies. The focus will be on the importance of genomics and application to blood cancers. In addition, we will seek perspective from key international & national leaders on their experience so far. In addition, we will also discuss laboratory aspects of genomics such as panel design, standardization of NGS assays and data analytics. This meeting will be preceded by a 3-day hands-on informatics workshop.
