Next Generation Sequencing in Clinical Diagnostics


This is an open symposium arranged by SciLifeLab and Uppsala University Hospital focusing on the application of next-generation sequencing in routine diagnostics. Internationally recognized clinicians and scientists will give state-of-the-art lectures and give examples how next-generation sequencing can be applied in the diagnostic setting. The symposium will cover next-generation sequencing in diagnostics of solid tumors, hematological malignancies, and inherited genetic diseases. The bioinformatic challenges and ethical questions, such as  the reporting of incidental findings, will also be presented. The newly established national SciLifeLab Clinical Sequencing Facility will also report on its method development projects.

The aim of this symposium is to give important insights how next-generation sequencing can be transferred into the health-care system, but also discuss future directions within this rapidly progressing and very promising field.

The symposium is free of charge (on a first come basis).

 

The registration has closed.
