Single-Cell Genomics Applications in Oncology Therapeutic Development: Resolving the Complexity of Cancer Heterogeneity, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Share Article

In this free webinar, the featured speakers will discuss the multi-faceted nature of cancer heterogeneity and its impact on cancer progression & persistence. Attendees will learn about a single-cell analysis platform to detect and quantify genomic alterations as well as applications in monitoring of minimum residual disease, mutation co-occurrence and clonal evolution.

With the advent of single-cell genomic technologies, we can now interrogate cancer heterogeneity at a more fundamental level to enable more informed and potentially effective therapeutic strategies in clinical development.

In oncology therapeutic development and clinical intervention, partial responses and relapse are common phenomena and a significant impediment to effective treatments for patients. As our understanding of the complex biology of cancers continues to increase, we know that a significant contributor to these effects lies in cancers harboring a diverse collection of cells with distinct and dynamic molecular profiles. This feature of cancer heterogeneity manifests in several ways: intra- and inter-tumor, intra-cellular, as well as spatial and temporal differences.

With the advent of single-cell genomic technologies, we can now interrogate cancer heterogeneity at a more fundamental level to enable more informed and potentially effective therapeutic strategies in clinical development. In this webinar, featured speakers will discuss a specific platform capable of detecting genomic content from individual cells, thereby providing insights into cancer heterogeneity and response to specific therapeutics.

Join Steve Anderson, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer, Covance Drug Development; and Bin Wu, PhD, Senior Director, Head of Translational Medicine, Agios Pharmaceuticals, Inc., in a live webinar on Monday, December 14, 2020 at 11am EST (4pm GMT/UK).
