International Symposium “Omics and Health”

Venue: Auditorio Principal, Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad Mayor.
Camino La Pirámide 5750, Huechuraba.

Date: May 15, 14:00-18:00 Hrs.

Advances in omics technologies, such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics, have led to personalized medicine at an extraordinarily detailed molecular level. Individually, these technologies have contributed to medical advances that have begun to be incorporated into clinical practice. However, each technology individually cannot capture all the biological complexity of most human diseases. The combined utilization of clinical information with multiple Omics data is a powerful approach that provides a wider and more comprehensive view about disease biology in diverse models. In this workshop, we will discuss the benefits of integrating different types of Omics data and their impact biomedical research. The lecturers will share examples of problems and approaches where the integration of Omics data is a key component to understand, diagnose and report the treatment of diseases. Finally, we will discuss capacity building, scientific and technical challenges for the implementation of omics strategies in clinical practice.
