In his 2015 State of the Union Address, President Obama announced plans for the largest genomic study in history: the Precision Medicine Initiative. With a cohort of one million Americans, the PMI promises to increase our understanding of the genetic basis of disease and forge the way for new diagnostic and therapeutic innovations. The technology to undertake this monumental project exists today, but many scientific, legal, economic and ethical questions about the PMI and the practice of precision medicine itself remain unanswered. Join us for this unique two-day symposium at the University of Utah during which leading national experts in genetics, medicine, bioinformatics, intellectual property, regulatory science, health economics and bioethics tackle the major questions raised by precision medicine.
This two-day event will take place at different locations.
Thursday, December 3: The University of Utah School of Medicine, Eccles Institute of Human Genetics Auditorium (15 North 2030 East )
Friday, December 4: The S.J. Quinney College of Law, Moot Courtroom, Level 6 (383 S. University Street)
