As part of the training activities proposed by the EJP RD, a 3-day training course titled “Quality assurance, variant interpretation and data management in the NGS diagnostics era” is being organised by Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) in close collaboration with EJP-RD task partners, aimed the international research community: clinicians, medical specialist, laboratory scientists (EBMG-registered), junior laboratory scientists, clinical geneticists, policy makers and assessors for laboratory accreditation, and patient representatives with a basic knowledge in biology or medicine.
The fully online event will take place from October 27th – 29th.
Registration is currently open but will close on July 11th. As the training course is limited to 30 attendees, those chosen to participate from among the applicants will be informed by July 30th, with a further waiting list open until October 11th.
The course will build on expertise gained by EuroGentest and help in the translation of research tools to diagnostic applications (in line with the IRDiRC objectives). The impact is on the quality and reliability of NGS results, obtained through rare disease research. The training course will consist of plenary presentations, interactive Q&A sessions between speakers and participants, and hands-on training.
