Genomics in Clinical Medicine | Kochi

posted Dec 31, 2018, 9:45 PM by Vinod Scaria   [ updated Dec 31, 2018, 9:51 PM ]


As you are aware, genomic technologies have witnessed rapid advancement over the past few years. This has enabled us to understand the biology of diseases better and implications molecular characterisation of diseases. Also, the recent developments in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies have helped reduce the cost of nucleotide sequencing significantly, ushering in a revolution
in clinical practice. 

High precision diagnosis and prognosis prediction require integrating a huge volume of molecular data-sets including genomic data. Hence Clinicians need to keep themselves up-to-date regarding these developments in order to ensure the best possible treatment outcomes. 

We are delighted to welcome you to “Genomics In Clinical Medicine”, a comprehensive workshop that will provide a conceptual understanding of the spectrum of applications pertaining to genomic medicine.


Date & Venue
January 20th, 2019 (Date Revised)
This one-day workshop will be held on Sunday, 20 January 2019, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, at the Knowledge Hub, Aster Medcity, Kochi.

Genomic technologies have been progressing rapidly in the recent years. Many of these advances have accelerated our understanding of human disease biology with implications in better molecular characterization of diseases. In recent years, advances in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies have enabled a significant reduction in the cost of nucleotide sequencing. These together have signalled a significant change in the way we practice medicine.


A large number of molecular data-sets including genomic data needs to be integrated in the clinic for precise diagnosis and to be able to predict prognosis for a patient. It has become necessary that clinicians keep abreast of these developments and be equipped to implement it in their clinical practice. The workshop attains significance in this backdrop and provides a conceptual understanding of the spectrum of applications encompassing genomic medicine.

Center for Genetic Studies & Research and Institute of Cardio Vascular Diseases, The Madras Medical Mission, Chennai welcomes you to participate in the 2nd 3MGM 2017 on " Genetics & Genomics in Cardiovascular Diseases" which will be held on 8th and 9th September 2017.

The objective of the conference is to provide an insight about the role of genetics in cardiology by bringing together researchers, practitioners and students. This will give an idea on the recent advances that have taken place in the field of genetics and genomics. We have an outstanding faculty who will give lecture and would be happy if you could participate in this symposium and make it a grand success.

Center for Genetic Studies & Research (CGSR) has successfully established the Division of Clinical & Molecular Genetics that cater services to various medical specialties since its inception in 2011. The center is involved in genetic research, counselling, teaching and provides on-the-job training and observership to post graduates in Science and Medicine.

Institute of Cardio Vascular Diseases (ICVD) is a pioneer in state-of-the-art cardiac care in India. Besides providing humane medical care, the institute gives prime importance to pursuing medical research, as well as imparting training to medical and paramedical staff.We look forward to seeing you in Chennai during September 2017 for this scientific event
