We spoke to Dr. David R. Hillyard MD, Chair and Medical Director of Molecular Infectious Diseases at ARUP Laboratories, about his work within the realm of infectious diseases and the increasing role of molecular diagnostics in combating pathogens.
If you’ve been part of the GeoMx DSP Technology Access Program, then you’ll already know why this is so exciting. If you haven’t heard about it yet, then you should make sure you’re sitting down – yes it really is that exciting.
We spoke to Dr. Carlos Prada, Assistant Professor of Clinical Genetics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center within the University of Cincinnati Department of Pediatrics, and Dr. Emma Clement, Consultant in Clinical Genetics at Great Ormond Street Hospital in the UK, to find out how more about the challenges of implementing NGS globally, and where that implementation has been successful.
Dr. Jonathan Rothberg is a man who needs little introduction, and is now receiving the Association of Molecular Pathology’s (AMP) Award for Excellence in Molecular Diagnostics Services. We spoke to him about his many achievements, his proudest moments, and the future of his fascinating field.
Given that Front Line Genomics was started after its founder’s father was diagnosed with Mesothelioma, it’s naturally a cause that we care passionately about. To that end we sat down with the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance (MCA), an organisation dedicated to providing resources, information, and support to individuals suffering from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases and their families, to find out more about the great work they do and the challenges they face every day.
While the Annual Meeting & Expo is the pinnacle of the association’s educational calendar, AMP offers educational initiatives throughout the year in a variety of formats, many of which offer continuing education credit.
AMP 2018: Decoding the Cancer Genome: Breakthrough AI Technology Quickly Identifies Actionable Mutations
Explosive advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) have greatly improved the ability to identify actionable cancer mutations, both for solid and hematological malignancies, and sparked a new era of oncology care. But accurate analysis and proper interpretation of the complex genomic data produced by NGS remain key hurdles.
The Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) Annual Meeting & Expo is where the molecular diagnostics community gathers to advance clinical knowledge, discuss new discoveries, share recent successes, and showcase the latest technological advances in molecular medicine.
