NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Biogen, the ALS Association, and Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) are collaborating to study the genetics of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Under a new project called Genomic Translation for ALS Clinical Care (GTAC), the partners will perform next-generation sequencing and detailed clinical phenotyping on 1,500 ALS patients. Patient blood cells will be stored at the Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Core at the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute, allowing researchers to create cell lines for further study.

This webinar will discuss a study that set to assess the efficacy and safety of osimertinib in EGFR T790M positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients identified by using plasma sample and cobas EGFR Mutation test v2. This is the first prospective study to use liquid biopsy upfront to evaluate osimertinib efficacy.
