WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Interleukin Genetics, Inc. (NYSE Alternext US: ILI) announced today that Chief Executive Officer Lewis H. Bender will speak at the Washington G-2 Reports' Business & Financial Strategies for Molecular Diagnostics conference, taking place February 2-4, 2009 in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, February 4 at 8:30 a.m.
As part of his discussion, Mr. Bender will address the opportunities and challenges that exist within the genetic personalized health industry. The presentation will center on navigating genetic tests through consumer and physician channels from a regulatory, scientific and marketing standpoint, while providing a case study example to demonstrate their medical utility.
"The benefits of genetic testing across channels are significant," said Bender.
