Past Conference

2nd Personalized Medicine Conference

17 Mar 2017 - 20 Mar 2017

Cancun, Mexico

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.
