THIS IS A PAST CONFERENCE
The 20th Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC) will take place at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown on September 23 and 24, 2021 in partnership with the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC. UPMC is the largest academic healthcare system in the US. This city of steel has re-emerged as the city of Eds and Meds with nationally recognized universities and healthcare institutions. PMWC 2021 Pittsburgh brings together leading researchers to showcase practical content that helps close the knowledge gap among different sectors, thereby catalyzing cross-functional fertilization and collaboration to benefit both our valued partners and PMWC attendees.
Topics will range from exploring barriers to the implementation of pharmacogenomics and newborn sequencing, updates on population scale genomic initiatives, development of liquid biopsies, artificial intelligence and learning health systems, and many other topics addressing challenges for the adoption of precision medicine. Dr. Julie Johnson (University of Florida) will present a keynote lecture and receive the PMWC Luminary Award in recognition of her significant contributions in advancing the field of precision medicine.
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. Precision Medicine initiatives combine biomedical expertise, big data, and the social sciences to enable a comprehensive approach to providing patients with tailored health solutions. Conference attendees will have an opportunity to learn first-hand about the latest developments and advances in precision medicine as well as cutting-edge strategies and solutions that are fundamentally changing how patients are treated.
Registration for PMWC PITTSBURGH
PMWC 2021 will bring back by popular demand its Showcase sessions!
An opportunity for companies, healthcare providers, and researchers to
SHOWCASE A NOVEL PRODUCT OR SERVICE, LATE-BREAKING RESEARCH DATA, OR AN INNOVATIVE PROJECT.
There is NO FEE to Showcase – two representatives must register to attend the conference after selection.
The deadline to apply is based on availability and priority is given to novel technologies.
“Without PMWC’s initiative and support of getting us all together in one room to share and connect through discussions and exchange of ideas related to the progress, roadblocks, and next steps in Precision Medicine, our individual efforts could hardly ever combine effectively and synergistically to have as big of an impact on the field. PMWC events and showcases are pivotal in advancing precision medicine for patients.”

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.
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.
