The 14th Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC) will take place at the University of Michigan on June 6-7, 2018. This conference coincides with University of Michigan’s launch of a new Precision Health research initiative that integrates U of M’s strengths in Medicine, Engineering, Pharmacy, and Public Health. This initiative combines biomedical expertise, big data, and the social sciences enabling a comprehensive approach to providing patients with tailored health solutions.

To support the University of Michigan’s goal to bring together leading researchers from across the university and the country to springboard this new and exciting research initiative, PMWC and U-M have agreed that the campus is an optimal location for the next conference. This forum will showcase practical content that helps close the knowledge gap among different sectors, thereby catalyzing cross-functional fertilization and collaboration to benefit both University of Michigan and PMWC attendees.

The program will feature innovative technologies, and analyze the success of already thriving initiatives and clinical case studies that enable the translation of precision medicine into direct improvements in health care. Conference attendees will have an opportunity to learn first-hand about the latest developments and advances in precision medicine and cutting-edge strategies and solutions that are fundamentally changing how patients are treated. This is reflected in the Program Theme: “Big Data in Action: Insights in the Clinic”.

Agenda highlights:

  • Two tracks will showcase sessions on the latest advancements in precision medicine which include, but are not limited to:

Topics: Changing Pharmacogenomics, Community Setting Challenges, Patient Issues and Challenges, Legal and Ethical Issues, Integrating genomic data into EMRs, Emerging Technologies, Personalized Health Care Delivery, Personalized Modeling of Precision Health, NIH’s All of Us Study, Big Data in Action, Opioid Precision Health, Neurosciences, Big Data in the Clinic, Wellness and Aging, Epigenetics and Aging, Precision Cancer Therapy, Data Sharing in Translational Medicine, Economic and Socio-political Issues & various Showcases (see from 2018 SV)
