Individualized Medicine Conference Returns

By AJ Montpetit

Individualized Medicine Conference

The Individualized Medicine Conference is gearing up for it’s second appearance in Rochester, MN. The conference looks to provide a platform for a discussion on what Individualized Medicine is today, the vision for Individualized Medicine in the future, and how to apply Individualized Medicine in the clinical practice.

Plenary sessions feature speakers such as Eric Green, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute, Howard Jacob, Ph.D., Director of the Human and Molecular Genetics Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin, and Wylie Burke, M.D., Ph.D., the Chair of the Department of Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Washington.

There will also be a pre-conference course, Omics 101, explaining the use of medical genomics information in clinical practice, as well as post-conference workshops on Epigenomics and Microbiome, which are both free to attend.

If you are unable to attend the conference in person, you can follow the Center for Individualized Medicine on Twitter (@MayoClinicCIM) and follow the hashtag for the conference, #CIMCon2013.

There will also be a special Twitter chat, hosted by the conference moderator Dr. Richard Besser (@DrRichardBesser) on Tuesday, October 1st at 12pm (CST) focusing on relevant issues in Individualized Medicine. You can follow along on twitter with the hashtag #abcDrBchat or by clicking here.
