Dear All-this note is to encourage you to attend the Personalized Medicine Summit conference we have organized that will be held at UBC June 11-13. For registration and program information see http://www.personalizedmedsummit.com/. We have assembled an extraordinarily strong faculty with representation from academia, healthcare authorities, patients, industry and clinicians. Examples include Sir Malcolm Grant, (Chair, NHS England), Dr. Leroy Hood (President , Institute for Systems Biology), Dr. Andrew Morris (Chief Scientist, NHS Scotland), The Hon. James Cowan (Sponsor of the Genetic Non-Discrimination Act), to name but a few. As many of you know, we are entering revolutionary times in medicine as we move from a one-size-fits-all system to a data-driven, individualized approach to medical care that is referred to as personalized or precision medicine. The Summit will bring you up to date with the latest advances and will make the case that the time has come for BC to act to become a leader in introducing personalized, precision medicine into the population. This is an important event and I would urge you to register soon as we expect the conference to be fully subscribed.
I look forward to seeing you in June!
