Genomics for Personalized and Precision Medicine - One day meeting and Hands-on workshop on Exome Sequence Analysis

posted by Vinod Scaria   [ updated ]

Genomic technologies have been progressing at break-neck speed in the recent years, with newer applications being developed almost every day. Many of these advances have undeniably 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 signaled 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.

Genetics & Genomics in Cardiovascular Diseases / 2nd MMM Genetics Meeting

posted Jul 25, 2017, 8:13 PM by Vinod Scaria   [ updated Aug 11, 2017, 11:40 PM ]

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

GenoDerma (03-05 Feb 2017, Pune) - Genomics in Clinical Dermatology

posted Oct 6, 2016, 2:50 AM by Vinod Scaria   [ updated Oct 11, 2016, 6:18 AM ]

The Conference on Genomics in Clinical Dermatology
The cost of sequencing a genome is falling exponentially, putting vast amount of data in the hand of clinicians and researchers. This conference will teach you how to use that data for the benefit of your patients. It will introduce you to laboratories and scientists who can sequence entire genomes and help in prenatal diagnosis. It will teach you all about personalized medicine and how off the rack medicines will soon be forte and how you can group your patients more effectively for giving them individualized care. The conference will also touch upon the future of gene editing technologies which will soon render genodermatoses curable and how you can join the revolution.

A Hands on Short Course 
Intended for clinicians, students and scientists interested in learning the art of culturing melanocytes, keratinocytes and fibroblasts from human skin samples. This one of a kind workshop is totally hands on with practical modules on various cellular techniques available for treatment of disorders like vitiligo, burns, non healing ulcers, scars and for rejuvenative procedures for eliminating nasolabial folds and wrinkles.

Date: 
03rd to 05th February, 2017
Venue: Dr. DY Patil Medical College, Pune

GenoMed Calicut 2016

posted May 22, 2016, 5:55 AM by Vinod Scaria   [ updated May 22, 2016, 5:56 AM ]

Medical science is undergoing a paradigm shift as the script of disease is being written in a new language - the language of molecular biology. Within the next decade, anyone not conversant with this language will be pushed to the margins of front-line medicine. 

There is an urgent need for all doctors and especially those in the academic field to understand molecular biology and interpret the technologies associated with it. Skills like devising a PCR test or analysing sequence data can no longer be left to the laboratory scientist but has to come within the ambit of a physician's capabilities. 

The ICMR backed Multidisciplinary Research Unit (MRU) and the Institutional Research Committee (IRC) of Calicut medical college are jointly organizing a 2 phase workshop (GENOMED 2016) with the above mentioned objectives in mind.
