Creating a System for Pediatric Precision Cancer Medicine

September 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
Natural Sciences Bldg. 101, Natural Science Annex, Santa Cruz, CA + Google Map
Elaine Mardis

Elaine R Mardis, Ph.D.
Nationwide Foundation Endowed Chair in Genomic Medicine
Co-Executive Director, Institute for Genomic Medicine at Nationwide Children's Hospital
Professor of Pediatrics, The Ohio State University College of Medicine

Genomics-based discoveries have revealed the underpinnings of pediatric cancer over the past ten years of study. These findings stand in stark contrast to similar efforts in adult cancer genomics and have outlined a particular set of challenges to including genomics-based diagnoses in the clinical care of these rare diseases. Many efforts are now underway to address pediatric patients with relapsed or treatment refractory cancers using genomic technologies, advanced analytical approaches, and pathway level abstraction. My lecture will outline these challenges, identify our current approaches to address them, and share vignettes about our successes and failures, with a look to the future of this enterprise.
