It is my privilege to invite you to attend the Cancer Genomic Consortium (CGC) 9th Annual Meeting from August 6-8, 2018 in Nashville, TN. Please also plan to join us on Sunday, August 5th for pre-meeting workshops newly implemented this year based on member request.
The mission of CGC is to provide high quality education and promote best practices in clinical cancer genomics. The CGC Annual Meeting is a unique forum for education and discussion of best practices in laboratory genomics. CGC is the preeminent annual gathering for medical and laboratory specialists who are interested in the use of genomic techniques for diagnostic testing and translational research applications.
The meeting will include invited presentations from leading cancer geneticists/genomicists, oncologists, pathologists, focusing on the clinically important as well as recent developments in cancer genomic diagnosis, prognosis, and management.
CGC is committed to advancing clinical diagnostics through the early adoption, performance, and interpretation of cutting edge technologies for cancer and constitutional genomics and to improving the data processing that accompanies these technologies. Valuable practical aspects of the meetings derive from workshops, expert panels and round-table discussions on topics relevant for clinical practice, including data interpretation, access to shared resources and best practices in reporting and follow-up. Attendees are encouraged to take an active role in CGC initiatives by joining committees and working groups engaged in developing guidelines and resources for clinical testing.
