Updates Regarding COVID-19 Advisory

In light of the University’s guidance around social distancing, we have reviewed our upcoming Pediatric Grand Rounds sessions and have decided to move forward with virtual sessions for the immediate future. 

*Please note that all Pediatric Grands Rounds sessions will be online onlyPlease do not go to LPCH Auditorium. 

Pediatric Grand Rounds (CME): Harnessing Biotechnological Innovation to Improve the Outcomes of Pediatric Cancer Patients

Chuck Gawad, MD, PHD - Stanford School of Medicine

In this lecture, we will discuss three new technologies being developed by Dr. Gawad's  group and their collaborators. We will first discuss our use of cell-free DNA sequencing and the IBM electronic nose to diagnose and predict infections in immunocompromised patients. We will then describe our invention of a new genome amplification method, and its application to cancer research and beyond.

Session Description

The past two decades have seen a rapid expansion in the availability of sophisticated new technologies for making biological measurements. Some of these technologies, such as next-generation sequencing, have been integrated into routine clinical practice.  In this lecture, I will discuss three new technologies being developed by my group and our collaborators. I will first discuss our use of cell-free DNA sequencing and the IBM electronic nose to diagnose and predict infections in immunocompromised patients. I will then describe our invention of a new genome amplification method, and its application to cancer research and beyond. 

Education Goals

  • To understand the potential clinical uses of microbial cell-free DNA sequencing
  • To learn how point-of-care infectious diagnostics could change clinical practice
  • To understand how genetic heterogeneity contributes to cancer treatment resistance
  • To learn about the uses for single-cell sequencing in cancer research
