Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is rapidly becoming an indispensable and widely used tool in clinical genetics laboratories – across hospital, academia, pharma and biotech settings. NGS has made the concept of personalised medicine and rapid whole genome queries closer to reality, empowering clinicians to making genetically informed decisions.
We are delighted to announce our 3rd NGS research and technology symposium at Oxford, NGS 2015, which is to be held on 15-16 April 2015. The symposium will bring together researchers from hospitals, academia and industry as well as solution providers, and will cover the latest developments in NGS technology platforms, data analysis/storage tools and NGS applications in:
>Medical genetics and diagnostics, in particular cancer genetics
>RNA sequence analysis
>Single cell sequencing
Get involved and actively shape the symposium agenda
The symposium agenda is in progress and we are currently welcoming proposals for podium sessions. Therefore, if you are interested in presenting your research at the symposium, or want to suggest a speaker or a session topic please get in touch with us on NGSOxford@gmail.com.
Who should attend
NGS 2015 Oxford will offer stimulating presentations from world leaders and thought-provoking discussions and is aimed at researchers from hospitals, academia and industry as well as solution providers, involved in the application of next generation sequencing. The relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the symposium will be an excellent networking opportunity; to develop new collaborative links, and to strengthen existing ties. We anticipate attendees in the following categories:
- Industry: CSOs, Reseach Directors, Team Leaders, Senior and Junior Researchers, Solution/Service Providers
- Academia/Hospital: Laboratory Heads/Professors, Clinical Geneticists, Postdoctoral Scientists, Advanced Graduate Research Students
