Point-of Care Genomics: A New Horizon in Personalized Healthcare
Presented At: LabRoots Genetics & Genomics Virtual Event 2018 Presented By: Marcel Dinger, PhD - Head, Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics, Garvan Institute; CEO, Genome.. Speaker Biography: Marcel Dinger is the Founding CEO of Genome.One, Head of the Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics (KCCG) at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and conjoint Associate Professor at UNSW Australia. Genome.One is a world-class clinical genomics service and develops specialist software and analytics solutions to enable precision healthcare worldwide. Genome.One was one of the first companies in the world to implement the HiSeq X Ten genome sequencing platform, which has capacity to sequence 18,000 human genomes per year, and provide a disease diagnostics service based on whole genome sequencing. He has worked in bioinformatics and genomics since 1998 in both commercial and academic capacities. He was awarded his PhD in 2003 from the University of Waikato in New Zealand, has published 90 papers attracting more than 10,000 citations, and is recipient of several highly competitive awards and fellowships. He is also a founder of two other successful start-up companies. In 2016, Marcel was admitted as a Fellow into the Faculty of Sciences of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australiasia and is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. Webinar: Point-of Care Genomics: A New Horizon in Personalized Healthcare Webinar Abstract: Genomic information has the potential to improve management or potentially prevent or enable early intervention of virtually every disease. However, despite massive technological leaps and exponential decreases in costs, genomics currently plays a relatively niche role in healthcare, with clinical use largely limited to diagnosis of pediatric disorders or as a last resort in guiding cancer treatment. The Garvan Institute’s Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics was one of the first sites in the world to acquire technology to sequence whole human genomes at scale. The service, now incorporated into spinout Genome.One, routinely sequences over 1,000 human genomes per month and is clinically-accredited for diagnostic testing of or predisposition to genetic disease. In addition to serving as a highly effective approach for diagnosing diseases that can be caused by large numbers of different genes, whole genome sequencing has potential for reanalysis in different contexts. This potential argues for a new testing paradigm, where genomic sequencing is undertaken once in an individual’s lifetime and analysed throughout their lifetime to guide clinical decision-making and optimise health management. Here I will present on our implementation, clinical accreditation and performance of whole genome sequencing in the routine diagnosis of genetic and rare diseases and its utility in personal health management and disease prevention. I will also discuss the challenges and opportunities for using genomic information to inform health at point-of-care, the incorporation of genomic information into medical records and its potential to transform medical research.

Eli Van Allen: Clinical computational oncology for precision medicine
The ability to create increasingly complex genomic data generated directly from patient tumors may impact our understanding of cancer and affect clinical decisions about cancer treatment. As the quantity of genomic data generated from individual cancer patients greatly expands, innovations will be needed to successfully implement large-scale genomics at the point-of-care. These include new ways to 1) interpret large-scale data from individual patients and 2) understand why patients respond (or don't respond) to existing and emerging cancer therapies such as targeted therapies, chemotherapies, and immunotherapies. In this talk, Dr. Van Allen explores how the emerging discipline of clinical computational oncology is powering new approaches for the clinical interpretation of large-scale genomic data and how these data are helping physicians understand why certain patients benefit from cancer therapies when others do not. While still in its infancy, this new field of clinical computational oncology may drive the widespread implementation of precision cancer medicine in the years to come. Eli Van Allen, M.D. A postdoctoral research fellow at the Broad, Eli Van Allen is an Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School and an oncologist at Dana-Farber/Partners Cancer Care, with a focus on genitourinary cancers. His research melds his background in computer science with cancer genomics in order to develop algorithms that analyze and interpret genomic data to help patients. This research is at the front lines of precision cancer medicine, including understanding why resistance develops and identifying targeted therapies for patients. A native of Los Angeles, Eli studied Symbolic Systems, an inter-disciplinary major at Stanford University that applies computer science to other academic disciplines, including linguistics and neuroscience. While at Stanford, he helped found Camp Kesem, a summer camp for children whose parents have cancer. This experience sparked his interest in oncology, and as a medical student, he realized that his talents in computer science could help propel advances in the field. (Eli still volunteers at Camp Kesem, which now has locations throughout the United States.) After graduating from Stanford in 2003, Eli received his M.D. from UCLA, and completed a residency in internal medicine at UCSF before coming to Boston and completing a medical oncology fellowship at the Dana-Farber/Partners Cancer Care program.

Precision Medicine: Personal Omics Profile for Understanding & Managing Health and Disease
DATE: October 16 6 AM Pacific Daylight Time and 4 PM Pacific Daylight Time ABOUT THIS EVENT: DNA and RNA sequencing technology and the burgeoning fields of proteomics and metabolomics are transforming our understanding of disease biology. Researchers are now rapidly discovering biomarkers to probe the underlying pathology of a disease and define the dynamic changes that occur during infection. One researcher is at the cutting-edge of this field: Professor Michael Snyder at Stanford University is the first to relate personal genomics to 'omics' activity and interpret the medical relevance. And Professor Snyder should know best: he has been sequencing his genome and routinely drawing his own blood to track the changes in a billion biomarkers; including RNA, proteins, metabolites and antibodies to predict and validate disease risk. In this webinar, Professor Snyder will discuss the profiling of personal transcriptomes, proteomes, cytokines, metabolomes and autoantibodies to create integrative Personal Omics Profiles (iPOP). Professor Snyder will explain how iPOPs can provide critical insight into the causes and development of disease. In this webinar you will learn: How 'omics' profiling of transcriptomes, proteomes, cytokines, metabolomes and autoantibodies has revealed dynamic and wide ranging variation in the different molecular components that occur during the progression of an infection How analysis of heteroallelic expression suggests that significant changes in differential allele expression occur in healthy and disease states How integrated analysis of multi-omic data on coding and gene regulation can lead to enhanced prediction of disease risk SPEAKER: Professor Michael Snyder, Geneticist, Stanford University Michael Snyder received his PhD training at the California Institute of Technology and carried out his postdoctoral training at Stanford University. Since then, Michael Snyder has held several eminent research positions at both Yale and Stanford, and is currently the Stanford Ascherman Professor and Chair of Genetics and the Director of the Center of Genomics and Personalized Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine. His laboratory was the first to perform a large-scale functional genomics project in any organism, and currently carries out a variety of projects in the areas of genomics and proteomics both in yeast and humans. These include not only a central role in the ENCODE project, but also the large-scale analysis of proteins using protein microarrays and the global mapping of the binding sites of chromosomal proteins. His laboratory built the first proteome chip for any organism and the first high resolution tiling array for the entire human genome.

CANCER HAS WON IT'S GAME OVER It is with a sad and heavy heart that I say this, my recent surgery showed each site was cancerous with no margins. Stains showed mass deposits all over my left side and back, with deep deposits towards internal organs. Time frame is irrelevant now, I do not want to tell anyone what is expected to happen now, until I am ready. I should explain for people I was told to enjoy the next two weeks as after that they expect me to be to sick to enjoy life. I am still going to have my samples tested in the hope we can save a life in the future, I will do everything in my power to make that a reality! We will all continue the research! My family and I knew this day would come, but it has come faster than any one expected, my team are fighting for me to try everything possible, but my body is failing fast, I can feel it and we all know it. No one should have to go through this mental and physical pain in this day and age. I will now be documenting the end of my life, my fight, my struggle in the hope that I can make people smile, laugh and spread some joy around the world. In the less than 0.01% chance I manage to beat this, I will spend the rest of my life helping others in horrific situations, cancer is just one awful thing that affects people! I will leave you with this, smile, laugh and see the beauty in everything everyday, make the most of being able to be you, but most of all never regret anything! Make every day count, because like me you may wake up unable to continue to do what you love. My dreams are just that now, dreams, white clouds in the sky that I will never reach. Much love and I'm sorry it's not better news. #dontgiveindontgiveup Don't Give In! Don't Give Up! Due to loads of interest you can now pre-order the #dontgiveindontgiveup hoodie and t-shirt now: https://goo.gl/RFUMmW I have a Go Fund Me setup if you would like to support me get research done into this type of cancer (Pleomorphic Sarcomatoid Carcinoma and Primary Cutaneous CarcinoSarcoma) with the hope that we can eventually find the best treatment, as there are very limited / no options left now, I have already started passing on samples, medical files and reports to specialists worldwide. The next step is to get my DNA Sequenced, so as specialist medical researchers can see if we can find the needle in the haystack to treat this. Not everyone can get the same type of treatment, not everyone is able to have chemo, radiotherapy, immunotherapy and the likes. I am one of those with a rare form of cancer that can't be treated by conventional means. There is litterally no research into this type so it's important to me, to document everything and record it all, so that if something can be done and someone spots it, we have that added bonus! https://www.gofundme.com/peeweetoms ------------------------------------------- Need Proof?

Genetic Testing For Cancer: What's in Your Genes?
High-Risk Cancer Genetics Program Although approximately 70% of cancers develop by chance, some individuals have a genetic pre-disposition to developing the disease either because of an inherited abnormal gene (hereditary cancer) or a combination of genetic and environmental factors specific to their family (familial cancer) If you or a loved one has a family history of cancer, Memorial Cancer Institute’s High-Risk Cancer Genetics Program can help shed light on your cancer risk so you can make informed decisions about your health and focus on cancer prevention. Our comprehensive program identifies and manages individuals with genetic predispositions to developing cancer, including those with an increased risk of acquiring the disease due to ancestry, family history or personal risk factors (such as atypia or carcinoma in situ). A Specialized, Dedicated Team of Experts By employing a multidisciplinary approach that includes cancer genetics specialists, oncologists, as well as primary care physicians, our team works closely with each patient and their family to develop a personalized care plan. Team members include: Board-certified oncologists Cancer risk assessment counselor Integrative medicine specialists Oncology social workers Registered dieticians Together, our highly qualified specialists are committed to identifying individuals who are at a higher-than-average risk of developing cancer and to offer counseling and risk-reduction strategies for cancer prevention and/or early detection. We provide a range of diagnostic and support services including: Cancer Risk Assessment counseling Hereditary cancer risk assessment (with a specific interest in the genetic factors that influence breast, colorectal and gynecological cancers) Genetic testing Access to clinical research studies (for diagnosed cancer patients Please consult with your healthcare provider to see if our program is right for you, especially if you have a personal and/or family history of one or more of the following: Cancer (breast, uterine, colon) diagnosed at an early age (less than 50) Ovarian/fallopian tube cancer diagnosed at any age Multiple family members with similar cancers (breast, ovarian, colon, uterine) Two or more primary cancers in the same person A rare cancer such as male breast cancer or sarcoma Triple negative breast cancer diagnosed before age 60 Family history of known genetic mutation Breast biopsy showing atypia, lobular carcinoma in situ Multiple benign breast biopsies Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry What to Expect Our cancer genetics team will: Determine if you meet the criteria for risk assessment and/or genetic counseling Assist in determining your insurance coverage for office visits and testing Meet with you to conduct a personalized cancer risk assessment consultation Obtain prior authorizations as required for genetic testing or additional screening as recommended Review assessment results, explain findings, and together create a surveillance and/or intervention schedule With your permission, share the plan with your other physicians to ensure they have all the required information to make clinical or diagnostic suggestions With your permission, possibly present your genetic profile (not your identity) to a national group of genetic experts (Genetic Tumor Board) to determine if they have additional insight or expertise to offer. If so, this will be shared with you and your physician team accordingly.

Early-stage breast cancer diagnosis: Ike's story of hope
Ike was diagnosed with HER2-positive breast cancer at the age of 38. Fortunately, she was diagnosed at an early stage, before the cancer had spread to other parts of her body. Early diagnosis meant that she could have surgery and other treatments to remove the cancer and help reduce the chances of it returning. In this video, Ike shares her powerful story of awareness, advocacy and hope. Since her diagnosis, Ike has been focused on raising awareness about breast cancer and the importance of early diagnosis. She has been involved in a number of projects with Roche, providing valuable insights that help us better understand and address patients’ needs.

So, you want to be a neurosurgeon | Julie Pilitsis, MD,PhD | TEDxAlbany
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. As immediate past chair of the American Association of Neurological surgeons/congress of neurological surgeons section on women in neurosurgery, I was instrumental in bringing our group from a fringe organization to a recognized section in our national organizations. The development of our “women leading the way” leadership program has filled a void in neurosurgical education and allowed partnering of women neurosurgeons with women in the medical device industry. A portion of our program focuses on mentorship of female medical students, which matches 70-80 female students with neurosurgeons. We continue to look at the issues that face women in neurosurgery residency and practice to promote retention (samadani et al, accepted Journal of Neurosurgery 2014) Julie G Pilitsis MD, PhD completed an accelerated 6 yr BS/MD program at Rensselaer and Albany Medical College. She went on to complete a PHD and neurosurgical residency at Wayne State University.

PatientswithPower Cancer Patient Planning Tool Debuts
Kathi Browne talks with Bill Guthrie, Co-founder and CEO of PatientsWithPower, and Casey Quinlan, author of "Cancer for Christmas", to learn about an new interactive tool to benefit cancer patients. Cancer patients have to understand what their "stage" means, learn about treatment options, and then start a long process of scheduling visits, planning for transportation, preparing for bad days and hair loss, and looking for words of wisdom from other survivors. This web-based software application called PatientswithPower helps cancer patients understand treatment options, lay out a personal treatment plan that fits their needs and priorities, and coordinate with their physicians. Aligned with the Crowds Care 4 Cancer: Supporting Survivors, PatientswithPower provides the ability to document treatment history and generate Survivorship Care Plans for patients exiting active treatment (a meaningful use goal).

North West Coast NHS Genomic Medicine Centre - Meet The Team - 27th July 2015
A Liverpool group vowed to make the region a renowned leader in genomic medicine at its launch event on the 27th July. North West Coast NHS Genomic Medicine Centre, a partnership led by Liverpool Women’s Hospital alongside the North West Coast Academic Health Science Network, Liverpool Health Partners and involving several other NHS Trusts from the region, launched as part of the ‘100,000 Genomes Project’, backed by Prime Minister David Cameron. Angela Douglas, Programme Director for the group, said: “For the region to be one of only 11 successful bidders to embark on this project is already a massive achievement, and a feather in the cap for the North West Coast, but we want to do so much more than that. With the knowledge and skills contained across all of our various partner organisations, we have a real opportunity to make the North West Coast an internationally recognised centre of excellence and expertise in genomic medicine.” The ‘100,000 Genomes Project’, a three year project launched by David Cameron, has been designed to tackle the genetic causes of cancer and rare diseases. Angela Douglas continued: “The challenge of the project will be to embed its outcomes into routine health practice. The genomics community looks forward to working towards meeting that challenge. The project has the potential to transform the future of healthcare. It could improve the prediction and prevention of disease, enable new and more precise diagnostic tests, and allow personalisation of drugs and other treatments to specific genetic variants.” The initiative involves collecting and decoding 100,000 human genomes – complete sets of people’s genes – that will enable scientists and doctors to understand more about specific conditions. Professor Sue Hill, Chief Scientific Officer at NHS England, who opened the event, said: “I was delighted to be present at the launch of the North West Coast NHS Genomic Medicine Centre. This marked the start of a transformation journey for the NHS to embed the use of cutting-edge genomic technologies into clinical practice, to improve outcomes for patients . The palpable commitment and enthusiasm of clinical staff, managers and patients to make the North West Coast NHS Genomic Medicine Centre a success was inspirational.” It is anticipated that around 75,000 people will be involved in this project, which will include some patients with life threatening and debilitating disease. North West Coast Genomics Medicine Centre will be recruiting patients with diseases that the group has particular specialist services for, and patients may well be asked if they wish to take part in the coming weeks and months. Some participating patients will benefit because a conclusive diagnosis can be reached for a rare and inherited disease more quickly, or because a treatment for cancer can be targeted at the particular genetic change that is present in their cancer. But for a number of patients, the benefit will be in the improvement in our knowledge of the influence of genomics on disease and how it is expressed in an individual, how other people can be helped with similar diseases in the future, and how different types of tests can be developed to detect changes beyond the genome. Life Sciences Minister George Freeman added: “Our understanding of genomics is transforming the landscape for disease diagnosis and medicines research. We want to make the UK the best place in the world to design and discover 21st century medicines which is why we have invested in the 100,000 Genomes Project. We also want to ensure NHS patients benefit which is why we have now selected NHS hospitals to help us sequence genomes on an unprecedented scale and bring better treatments to people with cancers and rare diseases for generations to come.”

YOW! Connected 2016 Robert Clarke - IoT Medical Application: Cancer Treatment
Medical Researchers have made measurements suggesting that application of a Direct Current (DC) voltage prior to and/or during the Radio Frequency Ablation of cancerous tissue can improve the efficiency of the ablation process, resulting in larger areas of ablation than can otherwise be achieved. A prototype system, consisting of a software-programmable DC power supply incorporating sensors for measurement of Voltage, Current, Power, Impedance and Temperature as well as a control port for controlling a commercial Radio Frequency Ablation System (in this case, a Boston Scientific RF3000) has been built and demonstrated to provide a tool for further research and hopefully in the longer term, equipment useful in clinical situations. The system is interfaced via a Bluetooth link to an Android or IOS mobile phone or tablet which runs an App that controls and monitors the ablation process. The App can program ablation sequences as a series of steps that define a ””cooking profile”” and continuously monitor and record the measurement parameters. Sequence commands take the form of: ””Apply ramped DC power from 50mW to 100mW over the first 5 minutes, then continue this while further applying an RF Power of 40W for another 5 minutes”“. If measured parameters extend past pre-defined limits, the ablation is cancelled for safety concerns.Data logs (and corresponding ablation sequences) can be saved directly from the phone/tablet to cloud-based storage for further analysis. The system is capable of recording in a matter of minutes what researchers have previously spent years investigating. This development shows the potential of IoT connectivity and how taking advantage of existing infrastructure such as phones, tablets and the internet can drastically reduce the cost of development of sophisticated systems, because the display, user interface, communications infrastructure and computing platform are already. A relatively small investment in hardware and software can result in powerful connected equipment at a low cost. Robert has over 35 years experience in the design of Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits and Systems with his company RADLogic, and formerly with Austek Microsystems and CSIRO. He has been involved in all levels of hardware and software design from transistor-level circuit design and writing microcode through to array processor design and software application development. He believes in taking advantage of existing technologies when possible and shows in this presentation how to use mobile technologies and existing equipment to address a real-world medical application.
