2020 forgets the original C word…was Cancer.

Cancer is still an ongoing issue, and a lot of the same techniques used to model Covid-19 are used everyday by researchers to model other kinds of disease.

Come join Dr. Anna Trigos and MUGS for a special talk on Bioinformatics–an important tool in biological research.

BYO drinks and questions, and chill with us for a welcome break from the news, and communing over a shared love for science IRL.

When: 4th May, 11:00AM – 12:00 PM

Where: Zoom – 94073552720

Who: Dr. Anna Trigos is a postdoctoral researcher in bioinformatics and computational biology at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. She has won numerous awards, including the Postgraduate Research Medal and the Sambrook Prize for Research Excellence, and has a number of first author publications in high-impact journals. She will discuss the use of evolutionary network analysis to understand transcriptional dysregulation in cancer, as well as the study of the tumor immune microenvironment using novel computational algorithms to identify biomarkers of response to immunotherapy.

MUGS is the Melbourne University Genetics Society. We run science events, talks and quiz nights (in normal circumstances). We hope to get people excited about studying or working in genetics. Like us on Facebook.
