Genetics Virtual Week 2022 will offer a multi-day content-rich program combining stellar expertise from world-renowned keynote and featured speakers in the areas of Genetics & Genomics an expanding field of biology and human health, Molecular Diagnostics, exploring best laboratory practices and novel diagnostic applications, and Precision Medicine, spanning innovative technologies and solutions transforming healthcare and changing how patients are treated today.  

Over the three days, invited lectures, thought-provoking discussions, and posters will be presented by academia and industry experts, professionals in medical and clinical genetics, scientific leaders, and research scholars.

The tracks will include:

Genetics and Genomics - Dive into Genetics & Genomics with tracks covering technological advancements, novel approaches, and demographic approaches to disease. 

  • Advancements in Genomic Technologies

  • Sex, Epigenetics, Aging, and Disease

  • New Approaches in the Genetics of Disease

  • Long-read Sequencing

 

Precision Medicine - Optimize efficiency and patient care through molecular and genetic profiling. In this track you can follow important discourse on real-world clinical applications of precision medicine with new technologies and therapeutics.

  • Therapeutics in Precision Medicine

  • Precision Medicine in Clinical Practice

  • The Role of Technology in Precision Medicine

Molecular Diagnostics - Using genetics to facilitate detection, diagnosis, classification, and prognosis, this topic focuses on new technologies in testing and diagnosis.

  • Emerging Technologies and Methodologies in Molecular Diagnostics

  • Liquid Biopsies (Cancer Monitoring and Screening)

  • Infectious Disease Diagnostics - COVID-19 Testing

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster (with optional video summary) and discuss results with interested colleagues through email and our networking lounge. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2022 Genetics Virtual Week. Submit your abstract here.

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open for 2 years from the date of the live event, and the webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global genetics community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Continuing Education – Labroots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this event, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit per presentation for a maximum of 50 credits. This event will also provide CEU's for Genetic Counselors.  9 presentations have been approved by the NSGC to offer Category 1 CEU's.
