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: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
