WIB-San Francisco Bay Area Presents: "Hot Trends in Personalized Medicine," April 27, 2017

From 5:30 PM TO 8:00 PM

Rapid advances in sequencing and genomics have resulted in greater access to genomic data collection and analysis. With costs decreasing and speed of sequencing increasing, genomic data can be efficiently interpreted and applied to treat and prevent disease in a practical setting. Removing the barriers between benchtop and bedside enables researchers and physicians to capitalize on these technological advances and deliver high quality personalized health care.

Join us for an insightful panel discussion that will touch on several facets of personalized medicine, including targeted therapeutics, immunology, liquid biopsy, and genetic testing. The panel will be moderated by Amy Swanson, Illumina, and feature the following:
