Postgenetic technologies in medicine: from theory to practice

About the conference

More than 650 medical officers, scientists and students participated in the conference in 2015-2016. More than 45 leading world experts were our speakers, the exhibitions of 10 specialized federal and international companies were organized. Based on the results of the events, the abstract digest, which included 70 papers, were published.

More than 400 scientists, students and practitioners from all over Russia will gather in Voronezh State University and Voronezh State Medical University named after N.N. Burdenko to present their research work in the field of molecular genetics.

Postgenomic technologies are a worldwide trend suggesting the transition of biomedical science from fundamental and exploratory research to the use of "omics" technologies in the diagnosis, prediction and treatment of cancer and other socially significant diseases.

Jan Vijg

The leading scientist in the field of genetics, Professor at the Faculty of Genetics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (New York). Together with his team, Jan Vijg was the first to develop transgenic mice models for studying mutagenesis in vivo. Since then, these models have been used to study the possible dependence of aging on genome damage. Currently, Jan Vijg is developing methods for sequencing the genome of individual cells to study somatic mutations and epimutations with reference to oncology and aging of the body. The Ph.D degree Jan Vijg received at the University of Leiden, the Netherlands. He was also an invited professor of medicine at the Harvard Medical School in Boston, a professor of physiology at the UT Health Science Center at Houston (San Antonio, Texas), as well as a professor at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging (California). Jan Vijg is the author and co-author of more than 250 scientific publications, 8 patents and one of the founders of two biotechnology companies.
