Keith Stewart, M.B., Ch.B., the Carlson and Nelson Endowed Director of the Center for Individualized Medicine, has called it the “state-of-the-art genomics conference.”

It’s the place to hear hot-off-the-presses updates from world-renown experts such at Kathy Giusti, executive director of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, geneticist Stephen Scherer, Ph.D., FRSC, on his work with autism; and Mark Caulfield, FMedSci, with updates on the 100K Genome Project from Genomics England.

Whether you're a practicing clinician in Seattle, Wash., an investigative scientist from Houston, Texas, a certified genetic counselor from Atlanta, Ga., or a researcher from the European Union, you'll want to be on hand for the latest developments in how genomic medicine is changing everyday lives of patients.

Register today and become a part of the experience of how the promise of genomic medicine is improving practice, improving lives. Early bird registration, which runs through June 30, provides a savings of $100 off the conference fee.

And can’t we all appreciate an extra $100 in our pocket when we’re going to be there anyway? Bring a colleague with you and network at one of the most important gatherings of genomic scientists working in the field today.

Leaders in the fields of precision medicine, genomic research and health care delivery from around the world will join Mayo Clinic experts to talk about practical challenges and solutions for integrating precision medicine to advance patient care.

FinalREGISTERNOWPCARDConference highlights include:

  • Discover and discuss emerging topics in applied genomics in focused breakout sessions, case studies and a poster session.
