Presenting at AGBT Precision Health is really important…not only to explain what we are doing at the NHS, but as we look toward the future of collaboration, data sharing, and all the opportunities that we have, if we work together to truly improve outcomes for all populations at a global level.

The fifth annual AGBT Precision Health conference will be held virtually on September 10-11, 2020. This event is for leading genomic researchers, healthcare professionals, and healthcare industry stakeholders, bringing together practitioners and innovators at the interface of genomics, medicine, and health to usher in a new era of precision medicine.

Over the last several years, AGBT Precision Health has highlighted the most provocative discoveries and major initiatives in genomic medicine from leaders of national healthcare systems, genomics institutes, international biobank initiatives, transformative diagnostic approaches, and hospital-based implementation and reimbursement. Continuing the historical focus of AGBT on technologies and public-private partnerships, the Precision Health conference highlights innovative technologies and their impact in clinical diagnostics and therapeutic development, as well as the evolving view of genotype-phenotype interpretation from rare variants to polygenic risk scores.

AGBT’s aim is to pass the torch from pioneering researchers and developers of genome technologies to first movers in healthcare who are establishing standards of care and cutting-edge applications for genome technology in everyday clinical practice.

The well-renowned line up of speakers includes:

  • Kristian Andersen, Director of Scripps Research and Infectious Disease Genomics
  • C. Frank Bennett, Chief Scientific Officer, Ionis Pharmaceuticals
  • Robert M. Califf, Head of Clinical Policy and Strategy for Verily and Google Health Adjunct Professor
  • Geoffrey Ginsburg, Center for Applied Genomics & Precision Medicine at Duke University Medical Center
  • Eric Green, Director, National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI)
  • Professor Dame Sue Hill, Chief Scientific Officer, National Health Service (NHS) England
  • Richard Lifton, Rockefeller University
  • Cecilia Lindgren, Big Data Institute (BDI), University of Oxford
  • Alan Shuldiner, Regeneron Genetics Center
  • Howard Zucker, Commissioner of Health for New York State

According to Professor Dame Sue Hill, England’s Chief Scientific Officer, “Presenting at AGBT Precision Health is really important…not only to explain what we are doing at the NHS, but as we look toward the future of collaboration, data sharing, and all the opportunities that we have, if we work together to truly improve outcomes for all populations at a global level.”
