2022 Annual 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 13th Annual Meeting July 31 - August 3, 2022 in St. Louis, Missouri. In 2020, more than 500 participants representing 13 countries attended our two-day virtual meeting. In 2021, we returned to a four-day format but again opted for a fully virtual experience. In the late summer of 2022, we will host a hybrid (in-person + virtual) format that will feature in-person platform presentations, pre-meeting morning industry symposia, workshops, networking sessions, exhibitor hall, poster sessions, round table discussions, other interactive opportunities with our industry supporters, and CME credit. We will also provide virtual content streaming, live virtual Q&A, and CME credit for those unable to attend in person. If the pandemic situation worsens we have also developed a plan to revert to a fully virtual format emulating the successful virtual meetings of the last two years. However, it is our strong preference and intention to include an in-person component while also supporting those unable to attend in person

2022 Anticipated Program Highlights:

  • Clinical Applications of 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
  • Improving equity in access to genomic testing

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.
