About the course
This short five-day course, organised by the Division of Cancer Studies at King's College London, provides the conceptual framework as well as a methodological introduction to the integrated use of epidemiology and bioinformatics approaches in modern translational research.
Current genomic technologies allow the characterisation of biological samples at an unprecedented pace and resolution. Their development opened the way to using high-dimensional genomics data for the molecular dissection of the events underpinning different diseases, including cancer.
Genomic data can then be combined with epidemiological information to analyse selected patient cohorts and explore associations between the "molecular picture" of the disease, clinical parameters and environmental risk factors.
Who should attend?
This course is designed for a wide range of public health professionals (cancer care providers, medical students, pharmacologist, biomedical researchers) and scientists with various backgrounds (quantitative, computational, biomedical) in academic and industrial settings, as well as BSc, MSc and PhD students with an interest in cancer studies.
