First-Ever AACC Virtual Conference to Focus on Personalized Diagnostics
Date:8/1/2014

CHICAGO, Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- One of the major revolutions taking place in healthcare is the rise of personalized medicine, which is the practice of using genomic and other molecular analyses to tailor medical treatments to a patient's individual biology. Personalized diagnostics—laboratory analyses that inform the practice of personalized medicine—will play a major role in the lab's future. This fall, AACC's first ever virtual conference will feature the latest science in this exciting field and the novel technologies driving it forward, all in a convenient format that people can access without leaving their offices or homes. 

"Personalized Diagnostics Today: Where the Omics Community Collaborates" will launch online on October 28 with a keynote address on the lab's role in bringing omics technologies to the patient's bedside by Eric D. Green, MD, PhD, director of the National Human Genome Research Institute and a significant research contributor to the Human Genome Project. Personalized diagnostic technologies are already enjoying some success in guiding therapy for a variety of medical conditions, and Dr. Green will discuss how genomic discoveries are making their way into clinical care.

Other sessions at this digital conference will deal with the role of precision proteomics in personalized medicine, the lab's role in managing genomic data, new developments in high-resolution precision medicine, opportunities and challenges in companion diagnostics, and removing barriers to implementing pharmacogenomics in the clinic.

In addition to the educational sessions, the virtual conference will provide attendees with valuable networking opportunities. Participants will be able to engage in private chats with each ot
