Dr Jason Wong leads the Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics Team at the Lowy Cancer Research Centre. He obtained his D.Phil from the University of Oxford and completed postdoctoral training at the Conway Institute of Biomolecular & Biomedical Research in University College Dublin. His research is focused on understanding how cancer cells become mutated and how somatic mutations ultimately cause cancer.

Invited speaker Professor Susan Ramus, School of Women’s and Children’s Health, UNSW Sydney - Potential clinical applications of germline and somatic genomics

Professor Susan Ramus was awarded PhD from the University of Melbourne. She studied the genetics of inherited ovarian cancer at the University of Cambridge; led large-scale ovarian cancer genetic susceptibility studies at the University College London; and led large consortium projects on ovarian cancer genetic susceptibility and tumour profiling at the University of Southern California. As Professor of Molecular Oncology in the UNSW School of Women’s and Children’s Health, she has established and co-led the Ovarian Tumour Tissue Analysis consortium.
