Event Information: Sequencing Studies of NCI Germline Variation in Prostate Cancer Webinar December 11th 2018 3-4:30 pm ET

  Event Information: Sequencing Studies of Germline Variation in Prostate Cancer
Description:

 
Sequencing Studies of Germline Variation in Prostate Cancer

 

Speakers:

Nicholas Mancuso, Ph.D.
Post-Doctoral Researcher, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles

Christopher Haiman, Sc.D.
Associate Professor of Preventive Medicine, Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute, University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine

Dr. Nicholas Mancuso is currently a post-doctoral researcher in computational/statistical genetics in Dr. Bogdan Pasaniuc’s laboratory at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). His research interests include developing novel computational and statistical methods to identify genetic risk factors for prostate cancer using low-coverage sequencing data, rare genetic variation, and gene expression variation in large studies. Dr. Mancuso will be presenting on whole genome sequencing study of prostate cancer.

Dr. Christopher Haiman is an Associate Professor of Preventive Medicine in the Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute at University of Southern California (USC) Keck School of Medicine. His major research focus is in the genetic basis of cancer in minority populations. He has led several large genetic studies on the prostate, including the African Ancestry Prostate Cancer GWAS Consortium (AAPC, PI) and the ELLIPSE U19 GAME-ON project (co-PI). Dr. Haiman will be presenting on a sequencing study of aggressive prostate cancer.
