The Dawn of Personalized Medicine: Understanding Genomics, Epigenomics and Metagenomics for Individual and Public Health Advocacy Friday, Jan 10@7pm
You really are one of a kind in many ways. Lower cost technologies and advanced data crunching allow the careful characterization and analysis of your uniqueness, not the least of which are genomic. The careful matching of your individual biology to your medical care is now being called "personalized medicine" We. . . finally. . . have a speaker on this incredibly important topic. The implementation of these health strategies will very likely be a defining feature of our age.
Dr Ben Busby works for the National Center for Biotechnology Information, on the NIH campus, and has done research in biophysics, protein biochemistry, bioinformatics and evolutionary genomics. In Dr Busby's words " Francis Collins, the director of the NIH, has stated that personalized medicine is likely to dramatically alter healthcare in the next few years. In this talk, Dr. Busby would like to tell you why he agrees with Dr. Collins and how individuals' data can improve public health."
This is a very hot topic that is already affecting your health care in many ways. This talk is geared for the public, and judging from the title, you might hear about things that you don't typically hear elsewhere. Learn about it from someone who knows what they're talking about, in the completely unpretentious environs of our beloved biohackerspace. (We'd be happy to show you around) Once again, this event is FREE, (however. . . we really need your help. please consider donating something to keep these high quality things happening) Seating is limited, so please RSVP HERE.
