Back to the future: 

Retrospective genomics provides a new outlook for childhood medulloblastoma and ependymoma

This seminar will highlight recent advances and application of genomics and epigenomics to two common and malignant pediatric brain tumors, medulloblastoma and ependymoma. 

The webinar will begin with a presentation of multi-omic approaches used to inform medulloblastoma clinical trials, and to follow a seminar on how genomic advances are uncovering the molecular underpinnings of ependymoma with future clinical trial implications.

Date: Wednesday 1 September 2021
Time: 3.00pm BST
Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Overview of the webinar

  • Genomic profiling to inform medulloblastoma clinical trials
  • Novel genomic and epigenomic tools and their application to clinical brain tumor cohorts
  • Leveraging genomic technologies to delineate the molecular basis of ependymoma
  • Epigenetic signatures to delineate tumor heterogeneity of ependymoma
  • Q&A and breakout rooms
