COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ohio State University Medical Center has invited experts from across the country to discuss translating scientific breakthroughs in the laboratory to clinical health care practice during the national Personalized Health Care Conference on Oct. 16-17.

Health care leaders, government policy makers, health care providers, researchers, industry experts, academic leaders, and consumer and patient advocacy groups will be among the more than 200 attendees gathering at Ohio State University's Biomedical Research Tower to hear from national leaders in personalized health care. Industry leaders will discuss breakthroughs in gene- based information that helps individuals prevent disease, tailor therapies and maintain health.

With a conference theme of "Translating Science to Personalized Health Care," invited speakers include Linda Avey, co-founder and co-president, 23andMe, Inc.; Geoffrey Ginsberg, director, Center of Geonomic Medicine, Duke Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy, Duke University; Lawrence Lesko, director, Office of Clinical Pharmocology, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, U.S. Food and Drug Administration; Edison Liu, executive director, Genome Institutes of Singapore, professor of medicine, National University of Singapore, executive director, Singapore Cancer Syndicate and executive director, Singapore Tissue Network; and Jeffrey Trent, president and scientific director, Translational Genomics Research Institute.
Speakers and expert panels will discuss:

-- Opportunities and challenges of developing targeted therapies, genetic

tests, biomarkers and other diagnostic tools to deliver personalized

health care

-- Strategies for increased collaboration between industry and academia

-- The latest developments in cancer biomarkers discoveries and the

current practice in personalized cancer therapy

-- Challenges and opportunities of reforming current health care and

creating a value-based, patient-centric health care system

Personalized health care utilizes gene-based information to understand each person's individual requirements for maintaining their health, preventing disease and tailoring therapies. It is predictive and preventive, while also incorporating knowledge of an individual's environment, health-related behaviors, culture and values.

"Personalized health care is emerging as one of the most significant developments in health care in the 21st century," said Dr. Daniel Sedmak, executive director of The Ohio State University Center for Personalized Health Care. "The conference will serve as a national platform to discuss the emerging trends and latest developments of personalized health care research and its integration into personalized health care."
