The preeminent Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC) series is recognized as a vital cornerstone for all constituents of the healthcare and biotechnology community and considered an exceptional forum for the exchange of information about the latest advances and topics in technology, clinical implementation, research, and the regulatory and reimbursement sectors. Learn first-hand from the experts in precision medicine: recognized leaders and innovators, top researchers, medical professionals, and more, catalyzing cross-functional fertilization and collaboration.
PMWC2017 Silicon Valley on January 22-25, co-hosted by Stanford Health Care, UCSF, Intermountain Healthcare, Duke Health, and Duke University covers all facets of Precision Medicine including current hot topics like immunotherapy, the Precision Medicine Initiative (All of US), liquid biopsy, the human microbiome, big data, and cancer & companion diagnostics.
Genome sequencing has revealed an enormous biosynthetic capacity for microbial natural products, only a small fraction of which are represented in fermentation-based screens. Synthetic biology tools are being developed to translate the encoded diversity of microbial biosynthetic pathways into novel compounds and natural products. The Synthetic Biology for Natural Products conference will blend these disciplines with the goal of generating new platforms, tools and technologies to capture, manipulate and engineer natural product genes and pathways. Converting this vast untapped (meta)genomic diversity into novel chemical leads for biomedical and agricultural applications will require breakthroughs in design, scale and biologics that currently limit the field.
Key Sessions Include:
- (Meta)Genomics-Enabled Natural Product Discovery
- New Tools for Capturing, Manipulating and Activating SM Pathways
- Advances in Heterologous Expression & Screening Technologies
- Designing Genes and Circuits for Novel Products and Yield Improvement
Join us to keep up to date with the latest advances in epidemiological, diagnostic, clinical, therapeutic, taxonomic, pathogenic, immunological, genomic, and proteomic aspects of members of the order Chlamydiales, as well as Coxiella burnetii, rickettsiae, ehrlichiae and bartonellae
The 7th International Conference on Polar and Alpine Microbiology will take place in Nuuk, Greenland 8-12 September 2017.
Increasing focus on the Arctic region due to climate change and natural resources such as oil and minerals has made Greenland a hot topic recently and it is of course an excellent place to meet and discuss polar and alpine microbiology.
The theme of PAM 2017 will be: Coming in from the cold: Microbial roles in the warming cryosphere
This theme should reflect that PAM 2017 will place emphasis on novel research showcasing the roles of microbes in the rapidly changing polar and alpine environments. Greenland-related research will of course be prominent throughout the conference.
We hope you will join us for an interesting conference and look forward to welcoming you to Greenland in 2017.
