Personalized Medicine is the application of genomic data to ensure the delivery of the right treatments and preventive measures to the right patient at the right time, ushering in a new era of affordable healthcare delivered with laser precision. Personalized Medicine 3.0 is the third annual one-day conference focused on the perspectives of non-profit and corporate research, biotechnology, academic, and diagnostic leaders with concentration on how the evolving landscape is revolutionizing medical care. The conference will explore what happens "on the ground" when personalized medicine is put into practice, and what that means for caregivers and patients, as well as for the industries that develop products for personalized medicine. This year, we concentrate on the role of personalized medicine in optimizing cancer diagnostics and treatment.
