Overview

PMWC, the “Precision Medicine World Conference” is the largest & original annual conference dedicated to precision medicine. PMWC’s mission is to bring together recognized leaders, top global researchers and medical professionals, and innovators across healthcare and biotechnology sectors to showcase practical content that helps close the knowledge gap between different sectors, thereby catalyzing cross-functional fertilization & collaboration in an effort to accelerate the development and spread of precision medicine.

Since 2009, recognized as a vital cornerstone for all constituents of the health care and biotechnology community, PMWC provides an exceptional forum for the exchange of information about the latest advances in technology (e.g. DNA sequencing technology), in clinical implementation (e.g. cancer and beyond), research, and in all aspects related to the regulatory and reimbursement sectors.

Format

For over a decade, PMWC has recognized individuals who have played a significant role in transforming health care by advancing precision medicine in the clinic with the Luminary and Pioneer Awards. The honorees’ numerous technological and scientific contributions have expedited this transformation as demonstrated by the clinical adoption of precision medicine, and the ongoing introductions of novel clinical applications. For a deeper look into the fascinating achievements of our past awardees see the awards page.
