This conference at the Friday Center is free and open to all kidney cancer patients and survivors.
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.
Erica Pawlak, PhD, NanoStrings Technologies, will discuss the nCounter Analysis System, a digital nucleic acid quantification platform used for gene expression, RNA:Protein, single cell, miRNA, lncRNA, CNV, and ChIP/RIP-String analysis projects and applications.
Robert Croyle, PhD, director of the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences at the National Cancer Institute, will speak about the latest developments in cancer control and population sciences. The talk is sponsored by the Cancer Prevention and Control/Cancer Control Education Program.
Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive telehealth lecture with Stephan Moll, MD.
