2021 Virtual Meeting Industry Opportunities


                               

Why Support the CGC Annual Meeting?

CGC allows for access to a growing number of cytogeneticists and molecular geneticists in an intimate setting that's just not possible at larger conferences. As a Platinum sponsor, we were able to have several experts present their preliminary validation data at a breakfast forum available to the full conference which has been a game changer for us. CGC truly put us on the map with this key target audience. 
Warren Robinson, Chief Commercial Officer, Bionano Genomics


SciGene was a Platinum Level sponsor of the CGC meeting. We conducted a pre-conference workshop on our lab automation that was very well attended by director level decision makers. Most of the workshop attendees came to our booth for a demonstration during the conference and business discussions. Based on the success of the  meeting, SciGene plans to be a continuing sponsor of CGC meetings.

Industry Support Information

The Cancer Genomics Consortium (CGC) will hold its 12th Annual Meeting in a virtual format August 1-4, 2021.  This is the preeminent annual gathering for medical and laboratory specialists who are interested in the use of genomic techniques for diagnostic testing and translational research applications.

In 2020, more than 500 participants representing 13 countries attended our two-day virtual meeting. This summer, we will return to our traditional four-day CGC format that, in addition to platform presentations, will include two pre-meeting morning workshops, networking sessions, an online poster session, interactive opportunities with our industry supporters, and CME credit.

     2021 Anticipated Program Highlights:

  • Clinical Management of Neoplastic Disorders:  Testing Algorithms, Billing and Reimbursements
  • Clinical Applications of Chromosomal Microarray and Sequencing-Based Approaches
  • Validation and Quality Control of Arrays, NGS, and Cell-Free DNA Analysis
  • Clinical Interpretation of Sequence and Copy Number Variants
  • Bioinformatics, Clinical Pipelines, Databases, and Data Sharing for Publication
  • Challenging/Teaching Cases, Laboratory Advocacy

The CGC Annual Meeting is a preeminent annual gathering for laboratorians, clinicians and researchers with a shared interest in early adoption, performance and interpretation of leading-edge technology for cancer and constitutional genomics.  The collegiality of the CGC provides a unique educational opportunity for all to advance clinical diagnostics using genomic technologies (FISH, microarray, massively parallel sequencing, etc.) and to improve the data processing that accompanies these technologies. 

The meeting will include invited presentations from leading geneticists, oncologists, pathologists, and bioinformaticians focusing on the clinically important developments in cancer genomic diagnosis, prognosis, and management. Sessions are planned for data interpretation, information sharing, database development, and establishing best practices in reporting and follow up testing.
