Genomic technologies have been progressing rapidly in the recent years. Many of these advances have accelerated our understanding of human disease biology with implications in better molecular characterization of diseases. In recent years, advances in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies have enabled a significant reduction in the cost of nucleotide sequencing. These together have signalled a significant change in the way we practice medicine.
A large number of molecular data-sets including genomic data needs to be integrated in the clinic for precise diagnosis and to be able to predict prognosis for a patient. It has become necessary that clinicians keep abreast of these developments and be equipped to implement it in their clinical practice. The workshop attains significance in this backdrop and provides a conceptual understanding of the spectrum of applications encompassing genomic medicine.

Genoderma 2017

The Conference on Genomics in Clinical DermatologyThe cost of sequencing a genome is falling exponentially, putting vast amount of data in the hand of clinicians and researchers. This conference will teach you how to use that data for the benefit of your patients. It will introduce you to laboratories and scientists who can sequence entire genomes and help in prenatal diagnosis. It will teach you all about personalized medicine and how off the rack medicines will soon be forte and how you can group your patients more effectively for giving them individualized care. The conference will also touch upon the future of gene editing technologies which will soon render genodermatoses curable and how you can join the revolution.
A Hands on Short Course Intended for clinicians, students and scientists interested in learning the art of culturing melanocytes, keratinocytes and fibroblasts from human skin samples. This one of a kind workshop is totally hands on with practical modules on various cellular techniques available for treatment of disorders like vitiligo, burns, non healing ulcers, scars and for rejuvenative procedures for eliminating nasolabial folds and wrinkles.

GENOMED CALICUT 2016

Medical science is undergoing a paradigm shift as the script of disease is being written in a new language - the language of molecular biology. Within the next decade, anyone not conversant with this language will be pushed to the margins of front-line medicine.
There is an urgent need for all doctors and especially those in the academic field to understand molecular biology and interpret the technologies associated with it. Skills like devising a PCR test or analysing sequence data can no longer be left to the laboratory scientist but has to come within the ambit of a physician's capabilities.
The ICMR backed Multidisciplinary Research Unit (MRU) and the Institutional Research Committee (IRC) of Calicut medical college are jointly organizing a 2 phase workshop (GENOMED 2016) with the above mentioned objectives in mind.
