We are proud to announce our next entry in our series of lectures and workshops to help strengthen bioinformatics and computational biology knowledge in our student body:
Block 1: genomics/epigenomics/transcriptomics
Block 2: proteomics
Block 3: metabolomics
Each block will be headed by a lecture from a leading researcher in the field, followed by introductory level coding/bioinformatics workshops that will help students learn how to conduct similar research.
Our second talk is:
A multidisciplinary approach to precision medicine in kidney cancers by Dr. Yasser Riazalhosseini, on February 21st, 4PM (workshop Feb 28).
About Dr. Yasser Riazalhosseini: After undertaking post-doctoral studies on Cancer Genomics at the Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum (DKFZ; German Cancer Research Centre), Yasser Riazalhosseini joined the Department of Human Genetics at McGill as an Assistant Professor, and was appointed Group Head of the Cancer Genomics program at the McGill University Genome Centre. His principal activity has been to initiate and lead a multidisciplinary, applied research program on cancer genomics, with the goals of obtaining better preventions and treatments. His research program uses systems biology approaches that combine genomics datasets involving sequences from hundreds of cancers coupled with detailed clinical data, and functional studies.
We hope to see you there!
