The ICGEB aims at strengthening the research capability of its Members through a comprehensive training programme and approach to promoting biotechnology internationally. The active participation of ICGEB Member States nationals in the ICGEB Meetings and Courses is therefore highly encouraged. For more information on the terms of participation and funding opportunities for this event please access the meeting website or contact the local organisers directly.

The advent of next generation sequencing techniques, proteomics and other new high-throughput technologies have provided opportunities for the development of innovative strategies for disease diagnosis, prognostication and prediction, hence paving the way for true precision medicine. This meeting will provide an overview of the current and future use of these techniques in the diagnostic setup of malignant, inherited and communicable diseases.

Topics

Next generation sequencing techniques and bioinformatic analysis. NGS-based diagnostics in solid tumors, hematological malignancies, inherited and infectious diseases. Proteomic-based approaches for biomarker discovery. Predictive biomarkers and personalized treatment strategies.

Participants

Laboratory scientists and clinicians interested in learning about latest developments in the field of next generation diagnostics. All participants will be invited to submit an abstract for oral or poster presentation.

Funding

Participants are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs. A limited number of grants, covering accommodation and local hospitality for the duration of the workshop, are available to a selected number of nationals of ICGEB Member States.
