Genetic Alliance 2010 Annual Conference

07.07.2010
Organization promotes collaboration as necessary tool for the future of genetics

Genetic Alliance will hold its 2010 Annual Conference, Advancing Novel Partnerships, at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center July 15th-18th.

By facilitating collaboration and cooperation, the conference will help create meaningful partnerships that advance science, policy, translation, and treatments. Attendees will have the opportunity to share ideas and research with colleagues that hold the potential to transform the future of genetics and health.

Conference highlights include:

Genetics Day on the Hill On July 15th disease advocacy organizations, researchers, healthcare providers, industry representatives, students, families, and individuals affected by genetic conditions will visit the offices of their elected officials to educate them about genetics, health, and healthcare.

Gene Screen: A Night of Film on Health and Genetics One of our most popular events! The 2nd annual Gene Screen mini-film festival will feature innovative and informative films on genetics and health at E St Cinema the evening of July 15th.

Research Symposium A daylong event on Friday, July 16th entitled “Building Partnerships: How I Will Change” will examine current research paradigms and reflect on how to change the system, through partnership, to achieve the most innovative research solutions.

Dinner Debates Two simultaneous, engaging and lively dinner debates will provide an opportunity to exercise the mind with a stimulating discussion while socializing with colleagues from 7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, July 16th. The debate topics are power dynamics in clinical care and the deidentification of genomic data.

Workshops Thought-provoking workshops run by experts in their fields on health IT, partnerships, genetic information, and public health will occur on Saturday, July 17th.

Awards Dinner The Annual Awards Dinner will honor special individuals and organizations that have had a positive impact on genetics research and/or advocacy. On Saturday, July 17th at 7 p.m., Hal Dietz, Joseph Valenzano, Gregory Simon and the NJ Consortium of Care for Children and Youth with Special Healthcare Needs & Families will be honored.

A full conference agenda is available at: www.geneticalliance.org/conference2010.agenda.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
