Organized by Kelly A. Frazer of the University of California, San Diego and Geoffrey S. Ginsburg of Duke University, the four-day conference will:

  • Convene with a keynote address by John Bell of the University of Oxford, followed by four days of stimulating plenary and poster sessions;
  • Focus on genomics and the transition to genomic medicine (clinical care based on genomic information), the analysis of complex data sets, the development of robust bio-repositories, public access to large data sets being generated from funds from NIH and other agencies, and key regulatory issues and public policy;
  • Bring together translational and basic scientists whose collaboration is vital to making genomic medicine a reality that can have a positive impact on the treatment of cancer and other diseases.
