The impact of genomics and individualized medicine on clinical practice evolves daily. Stay ahead of the emerging research and update your practice by tuning into a session of the Advancing Care Through Genomics Virtual Speaker Series.
Viruses for Cancer Therapy: A Promising Treatment in Need of a Personalized Approach
August 25, 1:00 PM CDT
Stephen Russell, MD, PhD
The fight against cancer includes the amazing microscopic invaders, oncolytic viruses. A foe of cancer cells, oncolytic viruses can make a difference in the war on cancer through a personalized approach. Join Stephen J. Russell, M.D., Ph.D., as he discusses the value of oncolytic virotherapy in treating cancer.
Ponder the measure of all exposures of an individual during a lifetime, and the interactions with the individual’s genome. When genetics alone cannot explain a disease, we enter the world of exposomes. Join Gary W. Miller, Ph.D., and Konstantinos N. Lazaridis, M.D., Ph.D., as they discuss the current and future state of how environmental exposures we face impact health.
In our world’s fight against cancer and obesity, we need more than a “one-size-fits-all” solution. The development of individualized treatments is critical to the success for those who suffer from cancer and obesity. Join Marina R. Walther-Antonio, Ph.D., and Andres J. Acosta, M.D., Ph.D., as they discuss the role of precision medicine in cancer and obesity.
Artificial Intelligence (AI), can individualize medical care well beyond what genomics alone can do. Developments in AI will allow us to move from a reactive and corrective treatment paradigm to one that is preventative, personalized and curative. Join Bradley J. Erickson, M.D., Ph.D., Arjun P. Athreya, Ph.D., M.S., and John Kalantari, Ph.D., as they discuss the role of technology and artificial intelligence in driving therapeutic options for patients.
Bacteriophages: It’s A Medicine, Jim, But Not As We Know It
November 30, 2020, 12:00 PM CST
Join Jean-Paul Pirnay, PhD, Gina Suh, MD, and Nicholas Chia, PhD for an engaging discussion on Phage Therapy, a tool in the fight against antibiotic-resistant infections.
Mycobacterial Infections and Phage Therapy
December 8, 2020, 1:00 PM CST
Join Graham Hatfull, PhD, Gina Suh, MD, and Andrew Badley, MD for an engaging discussion on phage therapy and use of engineered phages for Mycobacterial Infections.
Phage and Antibiotics: Induction of an Antibacterial Type 7 Secretion System in Enterococcus faecalis
December 16, 2020: 11:00 AM CST
Join Julia Willett, PhD, Gina Suh, MD, and Andrew Badley, MD to learn about the complex interaction between phage and antibiotics in enterococcus faecalis.
