Lunch & Learn – October 2020

Accelerating Medicine with Modern Genomics

Thursday, 22 October 2020 | Live stream



Despite many advances in the field of genomics, the standard of clinical care for many disorders, including cancer, involves methods that were developed over 60 years ago. Recent technologies are enabling a massive modernization of this clinical care both in diagnostics and therapeutics. We’ll discuss how HPC is a critical component in this modernization.
