6th International workshop on Cancer Genetic & Cytogenetic Diagnostics, March 2018

March 28 to March 30, 2018 Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen, The Netherlands

This course will focus on all aspects concerning cancer genetics and cancer cytogenetics in a diagnostic setting. Basic technical aspects covering conventional karyotyping, methods and principles in fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), micro-array genomic profiling, MLPA, QPCR, gene sequencing and next generation sequencing will be presented. In addition to the various laboratory techniques there will be presentations regarding quality assessment and genetic abnormalities in various types of leukaemia’s and solid cancers. The presentations will be interspersed with practical exercises with the ISCN 2016 system for chromosome aberrations, interpretation of cases, and use of databases. Participants will have the opportunity to present their own observations and cytogenetic findings which are difficult to interpret. Since most presentations starts with basic knowledge and ends with most up to date information regarding cancer genetics, this workshop will be of interest for who are working in the field of cancer (cyto)genetic diagnostics.

The fee of €500,00 (reduced fee of €350,00 for technicians/trainees) includes the drinks, lunches and two dinners during the workshop , all course materials and two conference dinners. The organising committee will offer three grants, which includes the registration fee but excludes travel expenses and accommodation. The grants will be awarded to participants who are most in need of financial support. The grants will be awarded to participants who are most in need of financial support at the discretion of the organising committee. Accreditation is requested by GAIA and NVKC.
