Postgenomic technologies in medicine: from theory to practice

INFORMATION ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Postgenomic technology is a global trend that involves a shift from basic and exploratory research to the use of omix technologies. In the Voronezh region, within the last years, a number of projects have been implemented to accumulate and popularize knowledge and competence in the field of post-genomic technologies, which are successfully used in many areas of health care, agriculture and forestry. One of these projects is the annual International Scientific Conference “POST-GENOMIC TECHNOLOGIES: FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE”.

In 2019, within the walls of Voronezh State University, Voronezh State Medical University. N.N. Burdenko and Voronezh State Forestry University named after G.F. Morozov more than 400 scientists, students, medical practitioners and forestry professionals will gather to present their research work in the field of molecular genetics.

In 2015-2018 the conference was attended by more than 1,500 specialized specialists, scientists and students, more than 120 speakers - leading world and local experts made presentations, organized exhibition stands of more than 30 federal and international companies. Based on the results of the events, collections of scientific materials were published, which included a significant amount of work, the subject of research of which were postgenomic technologies.

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.
