In 2007, the Scripps Translational Science Institute held the first Future of Genomic Medicine (FoGM) annual conference. Future of Genomic Medicine VI will be held March 7 to 8, 2013, at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla. The conference will focus on the extraordinary advances that are occurring in the field, which include whole genome and exome sequencing, pharmacogenomics, and advances in cancer treatment as an outgrowth of genomics. The 2013 conference will include an in depth session on “idiopathic diseases”, an area in which there has been particularly remarkable progress. We will feature sessions on hot topics from non-scientists to speakers who are journalists, regulatory experts, and patients. Our overarching goal is to spearhead efforts to change medicine using genomics.
The FOGM VI Program Brochure is now available.
The Brochure includes details regarding both the faculty and program for FOGM VI, as well as registration information.
Pre-registration for the 2013 Future of Genomic Medicine conference is now closed as we are currently at capacity. Registration will be available on site. Thank you!

This online learning module is a series of “refresher” tutorials on topics ranging from the basics of genetics to pharmacogenomics. We hope that registrants who use this module prior to the meeting regard it as a helpful review of these topics.
