Precision Medicine World Conference Set May 24 & 25
Professionals involved in the field of precision medicine will gather May 24 and 25 at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business in Durham for the Precision Medicine World Conference 2017.
The Precision Medicine World Conference, formerly known as the Personalized Medicine World Conference, is billed as “the only fully integrated conference to examine the advances and challenges of personalized medicine through a practical lens.”
It brings together thought leaders of business, government, healthcare delivery, research and technology into one information-rich, two-day conference. This will be the first time the conference has come to North Carolina.
The roster of speakers, still being finalized, already includes National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins, M.D., Ph.D., former FDA Commissioner Robert Califf, M.D., MACC, and Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.
The conference format consists of two main tracks (1 and 2) and two parallel tracks (3 and 4). Tracks 1 and 2 include sessions by leaders in the commercial, pharmaceutical, academic, government, regulatory, venture capital, and non-profit arenas that deliver a broad and up-to-date array of content across the various facets of precision medicine.
Session discussions focus on time-relevant aspects with a selected set of key stakeholders, while commercial sessions cover the latest developments in technologies that are instrumental for the success of further adoption of precision medicine.
