The 20th Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC) will take place at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown on September 23 and 24, 2021 in partnership with the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC. UPMC is the largest academic healthcare system in the US. This city of steel has re-emerged as the city of Eds and Meds with nationally recognized universities and healthcare institutions. PMWC 2021 Pittsburgh brings together leading researchers to showcase practical content that helps close the knowledge gap among different sectors, thereby catalyzing cross-functional fertilization and collaboration to benefit both our valued partners and PMWC attendees.
Topics will range from exploring barriers to the implementation of pharmacogenomics and newborn sequencing, updates on population scale genomic initiatives, development of liquid biopsies, artificial intelligence and learning health systems, and many other topics addressing challenges for the adoption of precision medicine. Dr. Julie Johnson (University of Florida) will present a keynote lecture and receive the PMWC Luminary Award in recognition of her significant contributions in advancing the field of precision medicine.
