Event description

Description

Sidra Medicine is proud to host its fourth annual Functional Genomics Symposium from 8-10 December 2018 titled “Big Data to Clinic”. This year’s symposium will provide an opportunity to discuss cutting edge advances in genetics, genomics and “big data” in the field of medicine.

Understanding the variation of the human genome as well as its analysis and the evaluation of functional consequences of genetic variability requires extensive research, investment and collaboration. This needs the convergence of different communities of scientists to address the complexity of human disease and genome biology. What better platform to address this than at our very own Functional Genomics Symposium this year?

The “Big Data to Clinic” Functional Genomics Symposium will bring together a cross-disciplinary set of speakers who can address all aspects of genome variability and function, with a specific focus on the genetics of disorders affecting children.

The symposium will assemble a unique and highly interdisciplinary international community to discuss on how best to use big genetic and clinical datasets to provide novel insights into the biology of disease. The symposium will also focus on various scientific challenges including implementation, scalable data infrastructures and the analyses required for impact on discovery and how it will impact on clinical care as well as developing novel therapeutics.

Conference Objectives

  • Provide the latest scientific information on the collection, analysis and use of big data in the field of genomics and precision medicine;

  • Evaluate the actions on the evaluation of the functional consequences of genetic variants in the genome with respect to clinical phenotypes;

  • Explore the translation of the genomic knowledge for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of genetic rare and common disorders that affect children.

To achieve these objectives, the symposium will be organized in nine sessions that will be held during the three days.


The sessions will explore the following topics:

  • The message of the genes;

  • Genome sequencing in action;

  • Qatar genome and medical knowledge;

  • Modeling human disease;

  • Cellular and organ models of disease;

  • Treating genetic diseases;

  • Reproduction and infertility;

  • Diagnosis of the future child

  • Patient genome sequencing.


Conference Timings

Saturday, December 8, 7:00 am to 5:00 pm

Sunday, December 9, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm

Monday, December 10, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm

Target Audience

The Functional Genomics Symposium is directed towards physicians, nurses, pharmacists, healthcare policy makers, scientists, academic researchers and students involved in the field of biology, genomics, genomic medicine, genetics, cancer and other chronic diseases.


ABSTRACT SUBMISSION

The Functional Genomics“Big Data to Clinic” symposium will have a mix format of invited speakers and oral and poster presentations selected from the submitted abstracts. We expect a large and highly competitive submission of abstracts on the different topics of the symposium.

We encourage work that is original and innovative for the following sessions: The message of the genes; Genome sequencing in action; Qatar genome and medical knowledge; Modeling human disease; cellular and organ models of disease; Treating genetic diseases; Reproduction and infertility; diagnosis of the future child; and Patient genome sequencing.

Great reasons to submit an abstract

  • Global networking –We will bring world-renowned experts in the fields of genomics and personalized medicine, giving you the opportunity to discuss your research with distinguished scientists and doctors and find new collaborators from around the world.

  • Professional development –Improve your presentation skills. Get recognized for your research.

  • Awards:

  1. Additionally, early bird submissions are qualified for a chance to win one of the 5 competitive Travel Awards!

  2. Trainees are eligible to win best poster and best talk awards.


Accepted abstracts will be displayed as posters in a designated section of the Exhibit Hall from Saturday through Monday, December 8-10, 2018. Award Sessions and oral presentations are included in the scientific program.

Kindly submit all abstracts to mbrunsman@sidra.org.
