Learn More about Precision Medicine and the Presidential Precision Medicine Initiative February 24th, 2016
What if we could apply a patient’s genetic information to gain insights into the genetic variations of diseases and expedite drug development, to create more precise therapies? This is the goal of Precision Medicine. Join us for the Precision Medicine Virtual Event of the year, February 24th, 2016. The conference is free to attend, and offers a unique opportunity to interact with some of the premier experts in Precision Medicine today.
Since the completion of the Human Genome Project, extraordinary progress has been made in understanding the reach and impacts of human genetic variation. Advances in sequencing, genomic analysis, biomarker detection, coupled with new insights into rational drug design and re-purposing, have given doctors more powerful and selective tools to help treat disease by tailoring medicines to an individual’s genetic profile. Given that individuals’ health and disease are woven into a complex web of factors, the Precision Medicine Initiative Research Cohort will assemble not only genetic, but also environmental, behavioral, and clinical data so that researchers may understand the full range of factors that inform health and disease as they search for precision approaches to health maintenance, disease prevention, and therapies.
Precision Medicine 2016 will cover topics such as Progress in the Precision Medicine Initiative; From genomics to precision medicine: Uncovering and manipulating the genetic circuits underlying common disease; and Precision Medicine Approaches and the Future of Drug Development in Oncology.
