Genomics and other omics technologies are playing an important role in health care and are being increasingly used to manage personal health. Advances in genomic and clinical science have created an innovative opportunities to tailor health care to an individual. Personalized medicine is a strategy based on individual phenotyping of profiles rather than the long established ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.
The aim of this course is to introduce to a general audience the concept of “personalized medicine” and the impact that our enhanced understanding of the human genome has had on modern clinical practice.
The course will also emphasize relationship between genomics and (bio)ethics. The focus will be on the moral problems generated by molecular genomics research, and the development and application of new knowledge in clinical genetics and personalized medicine.
- Designing customized bioinformatics and statistical solutions for high-throughput sequencing and array data to identify diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic target prediction biomarkers.
- Genetic alterations resulting in a disease, clonal landscape of diseased cells as well as integrative omics to assign genomic aberrations into a functional context using disease specific traits as well as public databases (TCGA/ENCODE).
- Current and emerging genome technologies for clinical and personal applications
- Genomic approaches for risk assessment, prevention, prognosis, and treatment of complex multifactorial disease states
- The ethics and regulatory issues involved in application of genomics based strategies to personalized medicine and its impact on health care.
