Examples of how to use the Cancer Dependency Map to further your research or develop new project ideas

04/12/2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Dr Ken Dutton-Regester
Research Officer
QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute

Abstract:
The Cancer Dependency Map (depmap. org) is a publicly-available resource describing multi-omic datasets on hundreds of cancer cell lines. In this talk, I will give an overview of how I am using this resource to 1) understand the biology of transcriptional cell-states involved in drug resistance and 2) identify unique cancer-gene dependencies in melanoma to find new drug targets. Come along if you want to learn more about the Cancer Dependency Map (relevant to all cancer types) and how it can be mined to develop new project ideas or complement your existing research program.

Bio
Dr Ken Dutton-Regester completed his PhD in 2012 focusing on the genomics of melanoma under the supervision of Professor Nick Hayward (QIMRB). In 2014, Ken was awarded an NHMRC Early Career Fellowship to learn genome-wide functional approaches at the Broad Institute of Harvard MIT and Dana Farber Cancer Institute (mentor: Prof. Levi Garraway). Ken was awarded a Queensland Young Tall Poppy Scientist Award in 2017 and is the past-chairperson of the Associate Member Council for the American Association for Cancer Research.
