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.

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.
When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...
Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur
What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
The quality of materials often depends on the manufacturing process. In casting and welding, for example, the rate at which melts solidify and the resulting microstructure of the alloy is important. With metallic foams as well, it depends on exactly how the foaming process takes place. To understand these processes fully requires fast sensing capability. The fastest 3D tomographic images to date have now been achieved at the BESSY II X-ray source operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.
Dr. Francisco Garcia-Moreno and his team have designed a turntable that rotates ultra-stably about its axis at a constant rotational speed. This really depends...
