Advancements in Cytogenetics: Diagnosis of Sarcomas and Lung cancer by FISH

Advancements in Cytogenetics: Diagnosis of Sarcomas and Lung cancer by FISH

Friday 9th June 2017
Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BE
Generon will be hosting a conference to bring together the cytogenetics community to discuss the latest practices in the diagnostics of Lung cancer and Sarcoma using Fluorescence in situ Hybridization with a series of seminars that aims to advance knowledge and share ideas. This one day event is accredited by the Royal College of Pathologists and the Institute of Biomedical Science

It is becoming increasingly evident that the identification of specific gene rearrangements, fusions, translocations and copy number aberrations are an important determinant in treatment.  Here we want to bring together experts in the field to share their experiences and ideas as a means of determining, not only early diagnostic methodologies, but also the emerging treatment regimens associated with specific cytogenetic anomalies.

If you wish to attend this event, you can register directly via the form. Regsitration is free with a limited number of places.
