The Personalized Medicine World Conference, PMWC 2016, will bring together nearly 1,100 key opinion leaders and stakeholders in the personalized medicine field on January 24-27, 2016 in Silicon Valley, California. Co-hosted by Stanford Health Care, University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Oracle Health Sciences, and PMC, the Conference fosters the exchange of ideas and dissemination of information for researchers, clinicians, providers, and government and biotech representatives. “Personalized medicine has tremendous potential to revolutionize health, but it also faces a number of non-trivial challenges in technology, medicine, and ethics,” said Atul Butte, M.D., Ph.D., PMWC 2016 Silicon Valley’s Program Chair and Director of UCSF’s Institute for Computational Health Sciences. “This conference aims to bring together experts from multiple backgrounds to explore these developments and challenges in a collegial setting, network with other leaders in the field, and forge the collaborations that will be required to make this a reality.” Participants at the four-day program will focus on next-generation sequencing and its clinical utilization, immunotherapy, biomarker discovery, liquid biopsy, research on longevity and aging, the regulatory landscape, and the commercial opportunities of personalized medicine. During the Conference, PMWC will honor four visionaries -- Drs. Laura Esserman, Roger Perlmutter, Ralph Snyderman, and Irv Weissman -- whose work in the field of personalized medicine has led to major advances and breakthroughs.
