OncomineWorld: A Virtual NGS Education Meeting


Thermo Fisher Scientific to host OncomineWorld: A Virtual NGS Education Meeting, produced by LabRoots, on May 14, 2020. The goal of this conference is to provide the latest developments in cancer genomic profiling—from research to diagnostics, whether your laboratory currently utilizes next-generation sequencing (NGS), or you are curious to learn more.

At OncomineWorld: A Virtual NGS Education Meeting, users will have the opportunity to attend CE-certified live talks with Q&A from leading NGS users on topics such as: comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP), the future of precision oncology biomarkers testing in the routine clinical space, personal experiences with different NGS products and solutions, and much more. The event will feature virtual laboratories with interactive content on immuno-oncology research, emerging NSCLC biomarkers, liquid biopsy, PIK3Ca research testing, and hemato-oncology research. Attendees may also visit the Precision Oncology Hall to realize the future potential of NGS in the clinic. Users will be able to experience a virtual lab, highlighting the new world of easy and fast NGS – the Ion Torrent Genexus System – and become familiar with Thermo Fisher Scientific’s well-proven workhorse, the Ion Torrent GeneStudio System. Finally, the event will showcase the latest research by Thermo Fisher Scientific in the virtual Poster Hall, and provide the opportunity to chat in real-time with technical experts in the “Ask an Expert” chat room.

“While we will go virtual for this event, given the unprecedented times that we are living in, we will not do that by losing our renowned proximity to our collaborators and customers.  Indeed, I am looking forward to multiple interactive and vibrant discussions, with highly engaging Q&A sessions. The Oncomine World, featuring a prestigious floor of outstanding leaders in the field of molecular profiling, will unite people from all over the globe with the common interest of advancing human health via using NGS. The speakers will share their experiences regarding the everyday challenges along with the successes that they are facing in the lab and in the clinic, but they will also share the first overwhelming positive experiences that their Teams are living using the brand new Genexus System. I expect nothing but to substantially advance my knowledge about NGS applications and have a rewarding day, filled with data and science.”
