Genomics Summit: Practical Genomics for Practicing Clinicians

In collaboration with the Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine

Download Genomics Summit Agenda

Friday, September 21, 2018
1:00-6:00 PM

We are pleased to announce our first ever Genomics Summit, offered in collaboration with the Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine. Learn from Dr. Stephen Kingsmore and others about how rapid Whole Genome Sequencing (rWGS) has quickly moved from the “bench” to the bedside, bringing hope to some of the most challenging cases we face in neonatal medicine.

The Summit will help you and your team position your center and/or health system to harness this technology and bring precision medicine to newborns with often unrecognized rare diseases. The expert faculty will provide data and case studies, and discuss the impact of rapid diagnosis on outcomes and the value equation.
