Clinical Application Course in NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) Oncology
The DXD Hub Campus presents its new online course “Clinical Application Course in NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) Oncology”, focused on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and its pivotal role in precision medicine, especially in oncology. This training program offers a unique opportunity for oncologists to explore how state-of-the-art genomic sequencing revolutionizes healthcare and therapeutic decision-making.
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has proven to be an invaluable resource in precision medicine, particularly in the field of oncology. By enabling comprehensive genomic profiling, NGS facilitates the identification of crucial genetic alterations for effectively tailoring therapies. This has led to improved treatment outcomes and minimized adverse effects, significantly enhancing patient care.
However, despite the transformative potential of NGS, there is a gap in education among oncologists. Providing adequate training and raising awareness about the usage of NGS are fundamental to fully harness its benefits. Acquiring knowledge is essential to empower oncologists and assist them in making informed decisions, implementing precision medicine strategies, and ultimately offering patients the best possible treatment options.
The educational goal is to provide an overview of NGS usage, including pre-analytical considerations, utilization of clinical reference databases, variant classifications, report interpretation, clinical applications, and potential challenges. Equipping oncologists with this knowledge will enable them to confidently integrate NGS into cancer care, thereby facilitating precision medicine and improving outcomes for patients.
The course program includes an enriching agenda with prominent figures in the field of oncology. Participants will have the opportunity to attend master lectures, discuss samples and pre-analytical phases, analyze data and reference databases, explore genetic variants and their clinical relevance, as well as understand limitations and potential obstacles in the clinical setting.
Registrations for the course are now open and will be available until September 17th.
