Future of Genomic Medicine 2018

Course overview

Course overview

In collaboration with AAAS/Science Translational Medicine we invite you to another exciting two day program on Thursday, March 1 and Friday, March 2 in beautiful San Diego, California. The 2018 program will again be held at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

The 11th annual Future of Genomic Medicine course 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 a faculty of experts in genomics, science and medical journalism, and the life science industry provide critical perspective.

This year we will be paying particular attention to the exciting area of genomic editing to treat particular diseases, cancer (a disease of the genome) and the genomics of rare and unknown diseases. Furthermore, we will delve into to the hot topics of the microbiome, genomic-guided drug therapies and genomic analytics. The overarching goal of the course is to spearhead efforts to use genomic knowledge to change medicine and make it far more precise and individualized.
