Industry Symposium + Breakfast

Unveiling the Power of 3D Genomics: Decoding Extreme Structural Heterogeneity in Glioblastoma

Wednesday, June 14, 2023 | 8:30 – 9:15 
Room 2 | Coffee and breakfast will be provided

In this session, dive into the fascinating world of 3D genomics and learn how this cutting-edge approach allows researchers to unravel novel disease mechanisms, identify therapeutic targets, and detect gene fusions crucial for cancer diagnostics.

Dr. Kristin Sikkink, Director of Research at Arima Genomics, will present compelling case studies demonstrating how 3D genomics identifies the genetic drivers of previously undiagnosed tumors. Joining her will be Dr. Argyris Papantonis, Professor for Translational Epigenetics at the University of Goettingen in Germany. Dr. Papantonis will illuminate our understanding of the spatial organization of glioblastoma genomes, elucidating its impact on tumor heterogeneity and providing valuable insights for targeted therapies.

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the exciting possibilities that 3D genomics brings to cancer research and beyond! Coffee and breakfast will be provided.
