LabRoots' exciting free virtual event – Precision Medicine 2016 - was a success! So much so that we would like to include Precision Medicine into our line-up for 2017.
Imagine receiving a full diagnosis from a simple blood test, or the ability to tailor the perfect treatment to your individual genetic makeup, taking into account your specific susceptibilities to side effects. What if we could apply a patient’s genetic information to gain insights into the genetic variations of diseases and expedite drug development, to create more precise therapies? This is the goal of Precision Medicine.
Learn more about the 2016 inaugural event by watching this video.
Precision Medicine 2017 will continue the dialogue and provide updates on the Precision Medicine Initiative ® (PMI), that called for initial funding of $215 million to support the creation of a national research cohort of 1 million or more U.S. volunteers (the PMI Cohort Program; $130 million), new efforts in cancer drug development ($70 million), advances in FDA regulatory structures ($10 million), and development of interoperability standards and requirements that address privacy and enable secure exchange of data across systems through the ONC ($5 million).
Precision Medicine is becoming an integral part of research in the science community. The discipline not only involves individual genetic information, but also environmental, behavioral, and clinical data. A combination of these factors allows researchers to put together a comprehensive view of each patient that aids in their search for precision approaches to health maintenance, disease prevention, and therapies.
We are proud to include C&EN as our partner in this virtual event.

POSTER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Posters should be submitted as a PowerPoint file. Presentations should incorporate illustrative materials such as tables, graphs, photographs, and large-print text. This content is not peer reviewed. Submission is free.
SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT
Enter the following information to this Submission Form:
All submitted abstracts will be reviewed and decisions regarding acceptance will be made as abstracts are received. You will be notified within one week of receipt about acceptance. Further details and registration materials will be provided at that time. You do not have to be present in order to have a poster displayed. Only those abstracts approved by LabRoots may display posters at this event.
If accepted, you will also have the opportunity to record a 3-5 minute summary video for each poster. LabRoots will work with each individual to create these videos. Video links and email contact information will be included on each poster displayed.
