    CAS Personalized Molecular Oncology https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/cas-personalized-molecular-oncology The CAS in Personalized Molecular Oncology aims at providing a comprehensive and integrative view of the field, by covering all the aspects involved along the pipeline: (i) tumor biology and genetics, (ii) molecular pathology, (iii) clinical bioinformatics, and (iv) clinical oncology. First of its kind in Switzerland, it will focus on the methodologies used to generate, analyze and interpret patients’ molecular profiles, also touching upon the associated technical, regulatory and ethical challenges. As an important outcome, it will establish a common language between the wide range of professionals involved in the personalized oncology process, from biologists, bioinformaticians, pathologists to clinicians, enabling an efficient and better informed use of e.g. genomic data for both routine clinical practice and clinical research. Moreover, it should empower professionals to develop a vision for their own institution, by critically evaluating the potential benefits and limitations of current and future developments in personalized oncology. The CAS is organized jointly by the University Hospital of Basel, the University Hospital of Lausanne, and the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics. 2018-10-01 09:00:00 UTC 2019-07-31 17:00:00 UTC SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics Pathologie Universitätsspital Basel, 40, Schönbeinstrasse, Basel, Switzerland Pathologie Universitätsspital Basel, 40, Schönbeinstrasse Basel Switzerland University Hospital of BaselSIB Swiss Institute of BioinformaticsUniversity Hospital of Lausanne Dr. Aitana Lebrand Clinical Bioinformatics SIB | Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics Ch. des Mines 9 CH-1202 Genève Tel. +41 (0)22 379 02 67 aitana.lebrand@sib.swiss [] Professionals involved in personalized molecular oncology, including laboratory managers, biologists, bioinformaticians, pathologists, geneticists, clinicians and pharmaceutical company employees. workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest Tumor biology and geneticsMolecular pathologyClinical BioinformaticsClinical oncology
