Date:9/6/2013

PHILADELPHIA - The Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics' 7th Annual International Symposium (ITMAT) symposium, Harnessing the Paradox: Personalization and the Science of Scale, to be held in October 2013, will address topics of direct relevance to translational science. ITMAT is part of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.

Speakers will include those dealing with large infrastructural investments, such as the recently funded $1 Billion European brain mapping program, as well as broad areas of scientific advancement such as systems biology, optogenetics and lab-on-a-chip technologies and specific advances in metabolism, metabolomics and the microbiome.

Garret A. FitzGerald, Director of ITMAT, will be hosting the event. The speakers and talks include:

  • Leroy Hood, MD, PhD, President, Institute for Systems Biology Systems Medicine, Transformational Technologies and the Emergence of Proactive P4 Medicine (Predictive, Preventive, Personalized and Participatory)
