Upcoming Personalized Medicine 3.0 Conference—Targeting Cancer

“Personalized Medicine 3.0--Targeting Cancer” is a one-day conference and networking opportunity for health and industry professionals, educators, and scientists. The conference will focus on cancer--using genomic information to characterize tumors precisely and ensure the use of the most effective treatment regimens for individual patients with the fewest side effects. The organizers note that personalized medicine is poised to transform healthcare over the next several decades, and that it offers both the possibility of improved health outcomes and the potential to make healthcare more cost-effective. The conference will be held in San Francisco at San Francisco State University from 9 am to 7 pm on Tuesday, May 25, 2010. The two previous annual conferences on personalized medicine have been enormous successes and similar results are expected for this third conference. The organizers urge you to register early as space is limited and the registration fee is $249 until April 15, 2010. Registration includes a light breakfast, lunch, and a networking reception at the end of the day. Registration details and a preliminary program are available at the conference web site (http://personalizedmedicine.sfsu.edu/), as are additional details on the conference.
