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.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
