Human Genomics and Personalized Medicine
Organizer(s): Kelly A. Frazer and Geoffrey S. Ginsburg
Date: June 17 - 21, 2013
Location: Clarion Hotel Sign, Stockholm, Sweden
Organized in collaboration with Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and Science for Life Laboratory - Stockholm. Sponsored by AstraZeneca, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc., H3 Biomedicine Inc., Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences and Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
The last decade has seen considerable progress in our understanding of genomics and the era of personalized medicine is just around the corner. Importantly, emerging data on the structure and function of the human genome are providing insights into the molecular basis of inherited disease and providing opportunities to improve human health through new approaches to diagnostics and therapy. These advances will impact all aspects of human health, ranging from cancer to other chronic diseases. Making genomic medicine a reality requires novel collaborations between basic scientists, translational scientist, regulatory bodies and health insurance bodies. Therefore, the Keystone Symposia meeting on Human Genomics and Personalized Medicine is a timely opportunity to bring leading researchers together to discuss the critical issues facing this emerging field. The meeting will focus on various aspects of the field, including genomics and the transition to genomic medicine (clinical care based on genomic information), the analysis of complex data sets, the development of robust bio-repositories, public access to large data sets being generated from funds from NIH and other agencies, and key regulatory issues and public policy. Importantly, the meeting will help establish communication and interactions enabling a faster implementation of genomic medicine and will also benefit from its international participation by highlighting areas of research that are of global concern.
