Genomics and Personalized Medicine
joint with The Cancer Genome
Organizer(s): Michael Snyder, Leroy E. Hood and Heidi L. RehmDate: February 07 - 11, 2016
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
Genomics and other omics technologies are playing an increasingly important role in health care, and new sensors are being developed to help manage personal health. Spurred by the revolution in DNA sequencing technologies, it is now possible to sequence the genome of patients with cancer, undiagnosed disease and even healthy individuals to help tailor treatment for a specific individual’s disease. This entire area is moving extremely rapidly in terms of technology, data, its management and analysis, and clinical uptake. The goal of this meeting is to bring together leaders in technology development, basic scientists, engineers and clinicians to advance human health. It intends to: 1) Help researchers and clinicians keep abreast of the latest developments; 2) Stimulate collaborations; and 3) Spur the development of new technologies that will improve personalized medicine.
