Precision Medicine:

We are pleased to host a second meeting on Precision Medicine: Personal Genomes & Pharmacogenomics which combines previous CSHL meetings on personal genomes and on pharmacogenomics. The meeting will begin on Wednesday November 13 at 7.30pm and conclude with lunch on Saturday November 16.

As genome sequencing becomes routine, the availability of individualized genetic/genomic information is changing and challenging the practice of medicine. Stratification of common diseases based on the individual's genetics is increasingly possible, as is the best choice of pharmacological agent to be deployed to combat that disease. At the same time, personal genome sequencing generates large amounts of data that will need to be integrated into medical decision making. This conference will explore the current state of individual genomics at the level of the underlying genome biology and its application in pharmacology and medicine. The conference will also showcase other areas (eg. ancestry) where the ready availability of personal genetic information represents a powerful new resource for analysis and understanding.

Abstracts are welcome for consideration as poster and platform presentations and should contain new and unpublished material. Status (talk vs. poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

We are eager to have as many young scientists as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Apply in writing to stating need for financial support - preference is given to those submitting abstracts.

We hope to see you at Cold Spring Harbor in November.

This conference may be supported in part by funds provided by:

Academic Package $1100
Graduate/PhD Student Package $920
Corporate Package $1400
Academic/Student No-Housing Package $750

Corporate No-Housing Package $945
