The meeting will put forward the tradition of bringing together different communities and contributing to an integrative approach to Personalized Medicine Research across all scales of observation.

Personalized Medicine-2012 will serve as an impulse for the advancement of molecular analysis by connecting scientists all across the world at conferences and exhibitions that would create an environment conducive for information exchange, generation of new ideas and acceleration of applications. Personalized Medicine promises many medical innovations, and has the potential to change the way treatments are discovered and used.

Conference highlights the following topics:

• Personalized Medicine - Reached the Clinic
• Human Genetic Variation
• Companion Diagnostics – Adding Value to Personalized Medicine
• Progress of Personalized Medicine – Targeted Therapy
• Biomarkers
• Nanotechnology and Personalized Medicine – Trying to Bring Dreams to Market
• Pharmaceutical Analysis Methods to Develop Personalized Medicine
• Proteomics
• Bioengineering in the Field of Personalized Medicine
• Implementation/Application of Personalized Medicine
• Translational Medicine - Recent Advances

A new technology – called “Sticky-flares” – developed by nanomedicine experts at Northwestern University offers the first real-time method to track and observe the dynamics of RNA distribution as it is transported inside living cells.
Access Denied: Leukemia Thwarted by Cutting Off Link to Environmental Support
A new study reveals a protein’s critical – and previously unknown -- role in the development and progression of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a fast-growing and extremely difficult-to-treat blood cancer.
Oxitec ‘Self-Limiting Gene’ Offers Hope for Controlling Invasive Moth
A new pesticide-free and environmentally-friendly way to control insect pests has moved ahead with the publication of results showing that Oxitec diamondback moths (DBM) with a ‘self-limiting gene’ can dramatically reduce populations of DBM.
