GGMC Educational Webinar Series
Upcoming Webinar: FEB. 29th, 2024
Join Us Each Month
The GGMC Educational Webinar Series, established and previously hosted by the International Health Cohorts Consortium (IHCC), has been expanded to include both consortiums within the GGMC organization. The series brings together leaders, educators, researchers, and professionals with all levels of expertise to share health sciences initiatives taking place in their respective fields and countries.
Each month’s webinar will feature new guest speakers offering novel insights into their fields. The virtual platform allows us to reach a global audience, particularly those in low-and middle income countries (LMICs) where our organization’s mission is heavily focused. This monthly series is free and open to anyone who wishes to participate.
Join us as we come together each month to share scientific ideas, best practices, challenges, lessons learned, funding opportunities, and more as we continue our mission of improving population health for all.
"Translating Science from Bench to Bedside: A Case for Extracellular Vesicles.""
FEB. 29th, 2024 / 9:00am EST / 2:00pm UTC
Prof. Carlos Salomon
Professor Salomon is the head of the Translational Extracellular Vesicles in Obstetrics and Gynae-Oncology Group, NHMRC Investigator Fellow and is considered a worldwide authority on Extracellular Vesicles biomarkers for complications of pregnancies and ovarian cancer (165 publications, H index 51, i10-index = 121). In the last 10 years, Professor Salomon’s primary research and commercialisation activities have focused on the identification and validation of biomarkers, and development of In Vitro Multivariate Index Assays for clinically relevant complications (including ovarian cancers, and obstetrical syndromes) and their translation into clinical applications. He is a pioneer on investigation the release of extracellular vesicles (EVs) by the placenta and tumour cells and their utility as a biomarker for a wide range of pregnancy complications and ovarian cancer (OC).
About the Talk
The burgeoning field of extracellular vesicle (EV) signalling holds the potential to revolutionise our understanding of cancer biology and offers new avenues for non-invasive diagnostics and therapeutic interventions. EVs have been implicated in various aspects of cancer progression, including tumour initiation, metastasis, and response to therapy. From the early stages of tumour development, tumour-derived EVs are detectable in the circulation.
