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: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

Im Focus: Developing reliable quantum computers

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...
