The Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) announced today that Francis S.

The theme of the event is "Realizing the Dream of Precision Medicine." Dr. Collins will address the 2,000+ molecular diagnostic professionals in attendance on the evening of November 12. "We are incredibly honored to have Dr. Collins with us," said Elaine Lyon, MD, PhD, AMP President, "he pioneered the field of genomics and continues to help create the landscape for precision medicine and the work of AMP members."

AMP will be celebrating the progress made in genomic medicine over the past two decades with the keen insight of one of the luminaries in the field. "Dr. Collins was the first recipient of the AMP Award for Excellence in Molecular Diagnostics.
