Company to assemble thought leaders to share pioneering personalized health research and innovations.

PerkinElmer Inc. is hosting a Revolutionaries for Global Health Summit from Wednesday May 8th through Thursday May 9th 2013 at the Boston Marriot Newton Hotel. The Summit is a forum for leading researchers and physicians to network and share best practices in both science and business and participate in cutting-edge discussions to help lead to better prevention, detection and treatment of disease. The meeting program will feature world-renowned experts presenting key insights on finding, understanding, and acting upon the causes and effects of disease including cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

“From Cradle to Grave, Health is Personal.”

"The Revolutionaries for Global Health Summit is a unique forum that fosters collaboration and shares research on how to use disruptive technologies to enable the advancement of human health. Recognized scientific leaders from biotech, pharma and academia will discuss their strategies and insights on how to enable better approaches for disease prevention, diagnosis and screening regimens, creating safer and more effective personalized therapeutics," said Kevin Hrusovsky, President, Life Sciences & Technology, PerkinElmer. “Once again, we look forward to bringing together hundreds of scientists from throughout leading research institutions around the world to the Boston area to share valuable insights and spark innovative discussions.”

The Summit will feature notable keynote presentations:
•    A presentation titled, “Quantitative Human Phenotyping: The Next Frontier,” will be given by Dennis A. Ausiello, MD, Physician-in-Chief at Massachusetts General Hospital.
•    Charles Mattocks, host of the TV Show “The Poor Chef”, will be sharing insights on a new movement called The Diabetic You, and how lifestyle and eating choices can complement modern medicine. In addition, he will be overseeing the preparation of all the food at the event to make sure that is not only delicious, but also healthy.
•    Dr. Richard Baum, Chairman and Clinical Director of THERANOSTICS Center for Molecular Radiotherapy and Molecular Imaging, will present “Personalized Molecular Targeted Radiotherapy of Cancer.”
•    Kevin Hrusovsky will present, “From Cradle to Grave, Health is Personal.” In the past year, PerkinElmer has made tremendous progress in the fight against cancer and disease. This talk will focus on how technology has contributed to this progress.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in six informative tracks in the following areas: next generation sequencing, in vivo imaging, targeted small molecule discovery, proteins and biologics, tissue and cellular imaging/molecular pathology and enabling and accelerating science through laboratory services and informatics.

In support of PerkinElmer’s vision of preventing disease, the American Cancer Society will be at the summit sharing information and recruiting volunteers for their cancer prevention study.
