Bookmark and Share

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

How Cell Growth Triggers Cell Division
Researchers in Jan Skotheim's lab have discovered a previously unknown mechanism that controls how large cells grow, an insight that could one day provide insight into attacking diseases such as cancer.
Probing the Forces Involved in Creating The Mitotic Spindle
Scientists at The Rockefeller University reveal new insights into the mechanical forces that govern elements of the mitotic spindle formation.
Identifying Cancer’s Food Sensors May Help to Halt Tumour Growth
Oxford University researchers have identified a protein used by tumours to help them detect food supplies. Initial studies show that targeting the protein could restrict cancerous cells’ ability to grow.
Specific Variations in RNA Splicing Linked to Breast Cancer
Researchers have identified cellular changes that may play a role in converting normal breast cells into tumors. Targeting these changes could potentially lead to therapies for some forms of breast cancer.
Thousands of Protein Interactions Identified
Thanks to the work by Utrecht University researcher Fan Liu and her colleagues, it is now possible to map the interactions between proteins in human cells.
Are Changes to Current Colorectal Cancer Screening Guidelines Required?
Editorial suggests more research is needed to pinpoint age to end aggressive screening.
