Course Overview

The 10th Future of Genomic Medicine conference will be the next iteration of taking genomic knowledge to transform the daily practice of medicine. To do this, we have patients present their story of how genomics affected their medical status, and have an international faculty of experts in genomics, science and medical journalism, and the life science industry provide critical perspective. The overarching goal of the conference is to spearhead efforts to use genomic knowledge to change medicine and make it far more precise and individualized.

Educational Objectives

After attending this live activity, participants should be able to:

  • Demonstrate the unmet needs of medicine today with respect to more targeted, individualized prevention and treatments.
  • Discuss the opportunities of the genome, proteome, metabolome discovery to change medical practice as it exists today.
  • Assess how changes and advances in technology are rapidly ushering in a whole array of new pathways for individualized medicine of the future.
  • Explore specific strategies in cancer, idiopathic and pharmacogenomic futuristic interventions.

Commercial Support

This course is supported, in part, by educational grants from industry. Appropriate acknowledgement will be given to all supporters at the time of the educational activity.


Cultural and Linguistic Competency

This activity is in compliance with California Assembly Bill 1195, which requires that all CME activities comprising a patient care element include curriculum addressing the topic of cultural and linguistic competency. The intent of this bill is to ensure that health care professionals are able to meet the cultural and linguistic concerns of a diverse patient population through effective and appropriate professional development. The planners, speakers and authors of this CME activity have been encouraged to address issues relevant in their topic area. A variety of resources are available that address cultural and linguistic competency, some of which can be found in the Cultural & Linguistic Competency Resource Guide.
