Karolinska Institutet (KI) – renowned medical university and home of the Nobel Assembly, is a one-faculty university dedicated solely to the medical and health sciences, with a reputation for top quality research and innovation.
The 2017 StratCan Interactive Summer School focuses on Genomics within cancer. The summer school for 35 international and national researchers selected for 2017 StratCan Interactive Summer School on Cancer Genomics will be held in the period between June 13th - June 16th at Sånga-Säby in the Stockholm archipelago.
The program will start High Throughput Biology Symposium and the camp will start in the opening ceremony in the Nobel Forum, KI Campus Solna.
The summer school will give participants, so called students on this occasion, a comprehensive overview of Cancer Genomics, and will allow students to present their own work and interact with world-leading professors in their research area.
Six of the top scientists in the genomics field have been hand-picked to help the students to focus in on the following themes:
- Functional Cancer Genomics
- Computational Cancer Genomics
- Clinical Cancer Genomics
- Cancer Evolution
- Cancer Genomics
- Chemical Genomics
The following speakers are confirmed (additional speakers pending):
- Dr Sebastian Nijman, Director of Functional Genomics at the Target Discovery Institute
- Professor Sampsa Hautaniemi, University of Helsinki
- Professor Lauri Aaltonen, University of Helsinki & KI
- Professor Ian Tomlinson, University of Oxford
- Dr. Thijn Brummelkamp, Netherlands Cancer Institute
The aim of the Summer School is to allow plenty of interaction and discussion between the students and the speakers. International Burch University Assistant Professor and cancer researcher, Şenol Doğan’s topic is: "Finding hidden genes in cancer genomics by using Bioinformatics and Biostatistical tools and similarities between cancer hallmarks and social illegal activities".
