Presentation: Implementing Next-generation Sequencing for Cancer Diagnostics

This month's meetup kick's off a series of talks/meetups surrounding NGS in clinical practice. Please note that the meeting will take place on a different day than usual, at a different location. Special thanks to Adaptive Biotechnologies Corp. for sponsoring and to Bob Livingston for arranging.

Our speaker is Colin C. Pritchard MD, PhD, Assistant Professor, Laboratory Medicine, Associate Director, Clinical Molecular Genetics Laboratory

Colin will be discussing "Implementing Next-generation Sequencing for Cancer Diagnostics" here's a summary of his talk:
Newer "next-generation" DNA sequencing methods allow simultaneous
assessment of mutations in many genes at once. This technology is
especially promising for cancer diagnostics, both for germline
sequencing for hereditary cancer risk, and for tumor-based sequencing
for precision cancer therapy. Since 2011, the UWMC Genetics Lab has
offered clinical assays for cancer diagnostics using next-generation
sequencing technology. This presentation will review considerations
related to clinical implementation of next-generation sequencing, and
will cover the ColoSeq, BROCA, and UW-OncoPlex gene panels currently
in clinical use for cancer patients and their families at UW and SCCA.

After the talks we'll be walking down for a pint to "A Terrible Beauty" Irish pub at 1001 Fairview Avenue North # 1700 Seattle, WA 98109

We look forward to seeing you there!
