The advent of new technologies that allow analysis of entire genomes presents many challenges to the researcher. A great deal of information is obtained through genomic sequencing and such information is highly heterogeneous, ranging from frankly uninterpretable to highly informative regarding the risk for future health conditions. Jim Evans, MD, PhD, will discuss some of these challenges and a variety of potential solutions.

Please join the UNC Cancer Network for and online, interactive telehealth lecture with Stephan Moll, MD. This lecture will help you understand what a blood clot is, your risk factors, and steps you can take to prevent them. Lunch and Learn lectures are geared toward cancer patients, survivors, family, friends, and care givers/supports but anyone interested in learning more about cancer is welcome to join us. Every lecture has a question and answer (Q & A) section at the end so feel free to ask the presenter for clarification or more information! While these lectures are viewable online, we recommend watching them at one of our Lunch and Learn sites. Please contact us for more information and for assistance locating a site near you.
