Thermo Fisher Scientific Showcases Large-scale Precision Medicine Research Studies in Genotyping

As more is discovered about the implications of genetic variation in 21st century medicine, the utilization of genotyping as a molecular tool both in the research and clinical setting is as important and popular as ever. This presentation will exemplify the power and precision of the Applied Biosystems™ Axiom™ Genotyping Platform in several settings.

In this webinar, which is sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific, participants will learn of the flexibility and accuracy of the Axiom Genotyping platform through comprehensive demonstration, as well as how it can be used to power large-scale genomic studies. They will learn about and discuss the Applied Biosystems™ PharmacoScan Solution for pharmacogenomics research and its usefulness in clinical research trials for stratifying populations.

Examples will include the use of Applied Biosystems™ Axiom™ Genotyping Arrays in the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Million Veteran Program (MVP), the use of the Applied Biosystems™ Axiom™ Precision Medicine Research Array, the use of the PharmacoScan Solution for pharmacogenetics, as well as using a unique custom array for potential dementia risk assessment.

Dr. Mark Bouzyk, co-founder and CSO of AKESOgen, Inc., will be the speaker for this event.

Bouzyk currently serves as co-founder and chief scientific officer of AKESOgen, Inc., a genomics, pharmacogenomics and biobanking company. Prior to AKESOgen, he spent five years as a faculty member in the Department of Human Genetics at Emory University. Bouzyk earned his doctorate degree in human molecular genetics from the University of Hertfordshire; his interests lie in Pharmacogenetics as well as candidate gene and genomic association studies to identify genes for both common and rare diseases.

LabRoots will host the webinar October 25, 2017, beginning at 08:00 a.m. PDT, 11:00 a.m. EDT. To learn more about this event, discover the continuing education credits available, or to register for free, click here.
