2nd Personalized Medicine Conference

17 Mar 2017 - 20 Mar 2017

Cancun, Mexico

Chairs

Synopsis

New diagnostic technologies and therapeutic approaches are being developed and implemented which will transform patient management in the near future.

This Personalized Medicine conference will address several of these key areas:
- Overviews of Personalized Medicine/Precision Medicine
- Precision Diagnostics
- Cancer Genomics
- Biomarkers
- Computational Imaging
- Bioinformatics
- Data Analytics/Big Data 

Learning Objectives

Develop a deeper understanding of key research questions, challenges, approaches and results in each of the topics. The Personalized Medicine conference participant will hear key findings and future directions for research in each topic.

Target Audience

Scientists and physician-scientists in academia, biotech and pharmaceutical companies who would like to gain a better understanding in any of the above areas or engage in discussions on state of the art in each of these areas. Specifically, researchers working in clinical research or clinical development, biomarkers, translational research, precision therapeutics, clinical genomics, and computational biology will find this conference very appealing.

Educational Need

The personalized medicine space has been defined by recent regulatory approvals of targeted therapeutics in oncology and co-developed diagnostics used in patient selection. However, a broader view of personalized medicine encompasses other disease areas, newer therapeutic regimens, new therapeutic platforms and broad computational approaches. This conference will weave together many of these new approaches and their relevance to personalized medicine.

Throughout your stay delegates will enjoy a full meal plan, inclusive of beverages. Take your pick from the aromatic Asian delights at Kaumbu, traditional fare at El Mexicano, delicious international cuisine at Kalmia Buffet or perhaps sample the sumptuous Italian dishes at Rosato. There are also several other dining opportunities such as the Cevichería, Pizzeria, Sushi Corner, pool and lounge bar areas. The Gala Night with either a Mayan or Caribbean theme takes place on the third evening of the conference with a mouth-watering feast of local cuisine, an open bar and amazing local entertainment.  We welcome all delegates and their accompanying persons to the Gala Night – a truly fun filled night not to be missed!

The Fiesta Americana Condesa, Cancun is the 2015 Winner of the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and also received the Travellers Choice Award in 2014. 

The remains of ancient Mayan cities are scattered throughout the Yucatan Peninsula and no trip to Cancun would be complete without a visit to these majestic temples and pyramids set amongst lush tropical vegetation. We will be working very closely with a reputable tour company who will be organising trips to Tulum, Chichen Itza, Coba and Xcaret  to name a few, some of which may require a full day. Full day excursions will be arranged pre or post conference and may be on an individual or group booking so we would recommend booking extra nights to extend your stay as early as possible to avoid disappointment should these excursions be of interest to you and/or your party. For further information please contact us.

Location

Cancun is a delightful combination of natural beauty, islands, ecological reserves and white sandy beaches. However, besides sun, sand and sea, this destination also offers an infinite variety of underwater activities to choose from: the diving, snorkelling and fishing here are outstanding and you will find an undersea world packed with tropical fish that live on the second largest barrier reef in the world. Sports enthusiasts might choose one of the many eco-tourism activities, such as cycling or hiking through the tropical forest or kayaking through mangroves, or something a little more adventuresome, like zip lining through the treetops.

Apart from the more well-known ancient Mayan archealogical sites such as Tulum, Cobá and Chichén Itzá you may like to visit the Aktun Chen caverns, voted one of the Top 10 underwater walks by National Geographic described as a truly magical experience.

Rio Secreto is an incredible underground nature reserve on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

Stretching approximately 8 miles, with 15 natural outlets, it’s the longest partially flooded cave on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. But what makes Rio Secreto unique is the fact that it’s semi-sunken, which means that you can hike or float through most of it.

If you have any animations or videos we do advise to run through the presentation with the AV tech to make sure everything is compatible. We also advise that all speakers make themselves known to the AV tech in the conference room immediately before your session beings. The AV tech will apply your microphone and provide a laser pointer should you have an accompanying presentation. We prefer speakers to use our master laptop to run presentations from, however, if you prefer to use your own laptop, please notify us in advance.

It is important that all speakers adhere to their presentation time and respect their fellow presenters. A visual traffic light aide will be available to warn presenters and the audience as your time decreases.
