Cancer Genomics: Deciphering Risk and Driving Discovery

October 29, 2019

12pm ET


Cancer has long been recognized as a genetic disease, from the discoveries of oncogenes and tumor suppressors, to hypothesis-driven work in model organisms. In recent years, scientists have been able to explore with unprecedented depth the genetic variation and mutational processes that promote tumor formation, progression, and evolution. In this AJHG-Cell Press Webinar, Stephen Chanock (National Cancer Institute), Kate Nathanson (University of Pennsylvania), and Peter Campbell (Wellcome Sanger Institute), will explore the ways in which genomic technology has transformed cancer research, leading to new biological insights and revolutionizing clinical practice.
