Part 2 in this Genomic Series will help cancer researchers better understand how genomic data can be used to gain insights into drug resistance, and will focus specifically on resistance and response in a specific subtype of breast cancer. The live broadcast takes place on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at 1 p.m. EDT.

Next generation sequencing (NGS) has posed new challenges and opportunities in cancer treatment and drug development. NGS has allowed clinicians and researchers to identify variants in cancer that may be predictive of response and resistance to oncology drugs. However, NGS outputs are typically large & complex datasets that are often difficult to interpret.

The speakers, Dr. Sarah Bacus, Senior VP and Chief Scientific Officer, Translational R&D Oncology, Quintiles, and Jeff Fitzgerald, Director, Personalized Medicine Integration, EA | Quintiles, will describe:

  •     The analysis of NGS data generated using a targeted cancer sequencing panel from a multi-sample cohort of patients
  •     How this data has led to new insights into drug resistance and response in a specific breast cancer subtype

Particular emphasis will be placed on contextualization of variants with respect to biological pathways.

By attending this webinar, the audience can expect to gain insights into translational approaches that may be used to understand the biological implications of genomic variants and their interaction with drug response.
