Healthcare leaders, federal policy makers, academic leaders, consumer and patient advocacy groups, and others with an interest will hear from recognized experts in the area of personalized health care. Industry leaders will discuss leveraging scientific discoveries from genomics and DNA research to improve health care outcomes and effectiveness.
“We are in the midst of a transformation in medicine and this year’s conference explores many of those changes, along with the great potential for predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory health care,” says Dr. Clay Marsh, executive director of the OSU Center for Personalized Health Care. “At the same time, we are providing a timely forum to address many issues high on the agenda of the current policy reform debate,” adds Marsh, who also is senior associate vice president for research in the Office of Health Sciences, and vice dean for research in the College of Medicine.
With a conference theme of “Transforming Health Care Through Personalized Medicine,” participating speakers include Dr. Leroy Hood, president, Institute for Systems Biology; Dr. Ralph Snyderman, chancellor emeritus, Duke University Medical System; Dr. Daniel Levy, director, Framingham Heart Study, and professor of medicine, Boston University School of Medicine; and Lawrence Lesko, director, Office of Clinical Pharmocology, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Speakers and expert panels will discuss the role of academic medical centers in advancing personalized health care in both research and clinical practice; personalized medicine and participatory health care; population genetics and heart risk profiling; developing a medicine model to advance personalized health care; how the patient-centered medical home model can improve patient health and strengthen the healthcare delivery system; consumer genetics, ethics and genetic counseling; developing a personalized cancer care policy agenda and its implications for health care reform; personalized cancer care – targeted therapeutics for diagnosing and treating hematological malignancies; and pharmacogenomics in clinical medicine.
Personalized health care utilizes gene-based information to understand each person’s individual requirements for maintaining their health, preventing disease and tailoring therapies. It incorporates knowledge of an individual’s environment, health-related behaviors, culture and values.

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.
Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
