A Decade with the Human Genome Sequence: Charting a Course for Genomic Medicine
Ruth L. Kirschstein Auditorium
National Institutes of Health
Friday, February 11, 2011
8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.Eastern
The past year has been a particularly special one for the field of genomics and for the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). This year has brought the 20th anniversary of the start of the Human Genome Project and the 10th anniversary of having in hand a draft sequence of the human genome. It also marks the end of a roughly 2-year planning process for the NHGRI, the output of which will be published as a new "strategic vision for genomics" in February 2011.
To commemorate this historic confluence of events, NHGRI hosted a day-long scientific symposium on Friday, Feb. 11, 2011, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the Ruth L. Kirschstein Auditorium, Natcher Conference Center on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus. The goal of the symposium was to offer the NIH community an exciting glimpse into contemporary genomics research, illustrating how genomics can be used to further medical discoveries and how genomics relates to individuals, communities and societies.
