Lecture Series Cancer Research - "Molecular dissection of disease evolution in glioma" - Prof Roel Verhaak

02/11/2017 11:00 to 02/11/2017 14:00 (Europe/Luxembourg)

Luxembourg, Luxembourg


Prof Roel VERHAAK is Professor and Associate Director for Computational Biology, The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine.


The highly lethal nature of glioma results in a huge year of potential life lost cost. High throughput sequencing has identified somatic alterations in primary disease but these have been hard to target, and as a result improvement in clinical outcomes has lagged behind compared to other cancers. An improved understanding of the mechanisms of glioma progression is needed to develop higher efficacy therapies. Through sequencing of patient tumors and model systems, we show how the glioma genotype and phenotype evolves over time.”.
