Clinical and translational genomics

Date & Time

About Simons Foundation Lectures

Simons Foundation Lectures are free public colloquia related to basic science and mathematics. These high-level talks are intended for professors, students, postdocs and business professionals, but interested people from the metropolitan area are welcome as well.

This Biotech Symposium will focus on clinical and translational genomics and the shift to precision medicine. Clinical and translational genomics have typically been approached as limited research or demonstration projects, whereas precision medicine envisions genomics as an integral component of medical research and practice. This transition presents a variety of specific challenges that will need to be addressed over the coming years.
