ExpressMed Laboratories

 

 Tuesday 7th February I 10:30 - 13:00

 Johannesburg room I Z1.D10

 

Overview


The Multi-Omics workshop will deliver forward-thinking perspectives on the latest genomics, nano imaging, transcriptomics and proteomics approaches, paired with breakthrough technologies. The audience will explore the role of translational and personalized medicine, examines the connection between omics and human diseases as well as pathogen detection, evolution and infection, in relation to the latest technologies. Analyzing the multiple omics layers in response to disease can provide critical insights into disease onset and progression to unlock clues into novel therapies.

Learning objectives:

  • Electron Microscopy as a powerful diagnostic tool in Kidney Diseases, Muscle Disorders, Neurological Disorders, Ciliary Dysfunction and Viral Infections
  • The importance of protein ultrastructural studies using Cryo-EM technology in drug discovery and pharmaceutical R&D sciences
  • Role of Mass spectrometry in pathology, diagnosis and treatment
  • Role of digital RT-PCR and Next Generation Sequencing in early cancer detection and prevention
  • Updates on Next Generation Immunohistochemistry, which is a recent technological breakthrough in the Anatomical Pathology
