WHEN AND WHERE
April 25-26, 2013
Back Bay Events Center in downtown Boston, MA.
SPEAKERS AND AGENDA
Each year we bring together around 30+ world-class speakers and conversation leaders to discuss the important ways in which new genomic technologies will affect all of our lives in the coming years and to debate their technical, commercial, and societal impacts. For a complete list of speakers, including bios, and to view the agenda for the GET Conference 2013 please visit www.GETconference.org
Each year, the GET Conference attracts thought leaders, innovators, investors, researchers and pathbreakers from industry, start-ups, academia, policy, healthcare, education and research. Another big contingent includes research investigators, participants and activists: the people that are advancing our understanding of how genomes and the environment combine to form human traits by putting their own skin (or saliva, lymphoblasts, urine, etc) in the game.
Hundreds of Personal Genome Project (PGP) participants have attended the GET Conference and we expect a record turn out this year. These individuals include some of the most well-characterized humans on earth. An increasing number of research groups are organizing phenotyping sessions, specimen collection, recruitment booths and other research activities at the GET Conference to take advantage of this special opportunity.
