GenomeWebinar

Director of the Laboratory for Clinical Genomics & Advanced Technology, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center & Norris Cotton Cancer Center; Professor of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, Audrey & Theodor Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth

Senior Member & Chair, Department of Anatomic Pathology, Moffitt Cancer Center;  Executive Director of Esoteric Laboratory Services, Morsani Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory & Scientific Director of the Moffitt Tissue Core

 Associate Professor of Pathology, Associate Director of the Residency Program, Medical Director of Cytogenetics Laboratory & Director Georgia Esoteric & Molecular Laboratory, Augusta University

Founder & Chief Biomedical Informatics Officer, PierianDx

This webinar will be a roundtable discussion on the adoption of a commercial gene panel for tumor profiling at several leading US cancer centers.

Our expert panel — Gregory Tsongalis from Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Anthony Magliocco from Moffitt Cancer Center, Ravindra Kolhe from Augusta University, and Rakesh Nagarajan from PierianDx — will specifically discuss their experiences with Illumina’s TruSight Tumor 170 targeted cancer assay.

The TST170 next-generation sequencing-based panel targets single nucleotide variants, indels, gene amplifications, gene fusions, splice variants, mRNA expression, and mRNA isoform detection found in 170 cancer-related genes and also calculates metrics such as tumor mutation burden and determines evidence for microsatellite instability.

Our panelists will discuss the design of the assay, data analytics, and reasons behind their selection of the TST170 assay, and will share details of how it is being utilized within their organizations.
