The past few years have witnessed a revolution in the understanding of health and disease, brought on in large part by the sequencing of the human genome and the creation of a map of human genetic variation. Personalized medicine is the translation of this knowledge to patient care by using genetic and genomic information in diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment.

The conference reflects a distinctive collaboration of the Partners HealthCare Center for Personalized Genetic Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and Harvard Business School. The alliance of these academic enterprises presents an exceptional opportunity to address the integrating of medicine and business in facilitating personalized medicine.
