Course Overview

Scripps Seaside ForumIn collaboration with AAAS/Science Translational Medicine we invite you to another exciting two day program on Thursday, March 3 and Friday, March 4, 2016 in beautiful San Diego, California. This year’s program will again be held at Scripps Seaside Forum.

The 9th 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. 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 the hot topics of the microbiome, genomic-guided drug therapies and genomic analytics. 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.

We look forward to your participation and another successful conference.

Eric J. Topol, MD
Course Director
