PMWC 2017: Advancing Genomics for Improved Patient Care
Wednesday, January 4, 2017
We’re excited to be participating again in the Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC), an independent conference series founded in 2009 and co-hosted with Stanford Health Care, UCSF, Intermountain Health, Duke University, and Duke Health. Considered to be the preeminent precision medicine conference, it attracts recognized leaders, top global researchers and medical professionals, and innovators across the healthcare and biotechnology sectors.
PMWC provides an exceptional forum for the exchange of information about the latest advances in technology (e.g. DNA sequencing technology), in clinical implementation (e.g. cancer and beyond), research, and all aspects related to the regulatory and reimbursement sectors.
From January 23rd to the 25th, some 1,300 attendees will descend on the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif. The event will kick off the evening of January 22nd with a reception honoring Jennifer Doudna, who will receive the Luminary Award for her groundbreaking work on CRISPR/CAS-9 genome editing technology, and James Allison, who will receive the Pioneer Award for his work on cancer immunotherapy through the discovery of the immune checkpoint blockade.
PacBio founder Stephen Turner will be speaking at PMWC about the advancements made possible by SMRT Sequencing. If you’ll be attending the meeting, be sure to check out the session “Advancing the Clinic with Emerging NGS Technologies” on January 25th at 10:30 am.
Registration for the meeting is still open. Use the code PacBio by January 15th to receive a 5% discount. We hope to see you there!
