Epidem&OMICS: The “omics” era of cancer epidemiology
Epidem&OMICS: The “omics” era of cancer epidemiology Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO), Madrid November 28‐29, 2011   Organisers             Carlos A. González, ICO, Barcelona, Spain             Núria Malats, CNIO, Madrid, Spain The plethora of omics data available at present also reaches epidemiologic studies providing a unique opportunity to further dissect complex exposures, genetic susceptibility, and phenotypes. Nevertheless, epidemiologists face several challenges in assessing and integrating, at the individual level, the complexity of this kind of data jointly with extensive information on environmental factors and behaviours in large epidemiological studies. Some of the challenges regard to the huge heterogeneity of the genetic alterations found through the new sequencing technologies, emphasising the notion of individualized diseases; the need to move from a candidate to an agnostic/exploratory exposure analysis incorporating epigenomics and metabolomics markers to better dissect the still “missing exposome”; the notion that nothing is static during an individual’s lifespan and the need to model this dynamic process; the necessity to consider intermediate outcomes such as gene expression and/or protein function and, at the same time, the need to consider comprehensive phenomes to better account for the underlying genetic pleiotropic effect in human organisms living in selected environmental conditions. The integration of several levels of data, from environmental exposures to epigenetics, metabolomics, as well as genetics, genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics information, requires the development of innovative designs as well as methodology, including bioinformatics and data reduction techniques. The course is addressed to the epidemiologic community with especial emphasis to the researchers interested/working on these topics interfacing biology and epidemiology.   MONDAY, November 28th 09:00 Welcome Address Carlos A.
