Scientists at Conference Discuss Revolutionary Impact of Genomic Medicine

Scientists recently gathered at The Future of Genomic Medicine II conference, sponsored by Scripps Genomic Medicine, to discuss the revolutionary impact that genetic testing could have on disease prevention and treatment.


Scientists gather to chart ‘total reboot’ for medicine, an article in the San Diego Union Tribune, features comments by Scripps Genomic Medicine Director Eric Topol, M.D. He asserts that advances in genomic research will result in a more individualized approach to medicine in the future, which will make prevention and treatment more effective and less costly.
