6th Annual International Translational Medicine Symposium held at Penn
Date:10/4/2011

PHILADELPHIA -- A unique gathering of international experts will be charting the unfolding landscape of how to bring personalized medicines to the consumer. Thought leaders from academic medical centers, government, and industry will identify opportunities and hazards about using personal genomic information to develop new treatments and cures. Held at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania on October 18 and 19, the 6th Annual Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics (ITMAT) International Symposium, Translational Strategies in Contemporary Science, brings together a distinguished faculty of over two dozen international thought leaders who will discuss the present and future of translational medicine, including personalized genomics and disease risk; nature vs. nurture and epigenetics in personalized medicine; and recent drug-development models that work.

WHAT:

Talks will cover:

The promise of how personal genomes can lead to better drug response and disease-risk assessment and how environmental factors such as diet limit that promise.

WHO:

Garret A. FitzGerald, MD, Robert L. McNeil, Jr., Professor of Translational Medicine and Therapeutics, Chair of Department of Pharmacology, Director of ITMAT and Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania (Conference Organizer)

Over 30 thought leaders in translational medicine will participate as speakers and panelists.
