GET Global Conference 2015 at CeMM: Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Personal Genome Project

This year we are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Personal Genome Project and the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Human Genome Project. Since its inception in 2010, the GET Conference series brings together the pioneers of personal genome sequencing to debate the technical, commercial, and societal impacts of affordable DNA sequencing. In 2015, we find ourselves on the verge of massive-scale population genome projects, and we will explore the impact of the breath-taking advances in genomic technologies for health and society.

Conference Agenda. Within a few years millions of people will have their genomic data. Multiple countries have embarked on mega-cohort initiatives aiming to advance precision medicine and the health of their populations. What are the opportunities to realize social benefits that exceed these enormous investments? We will explore this and more across several sessions:

  • Populations, chaired by Sir John Chisholm, Genomics England
  • Society, chaired by Barbara Prainsack, King's College
  • Technology, chaired by George Church, Harvard Medical School
  • Environment, chaired by Tim Spector, UK Twins Registry
  • Traits, chaired by Joseph Kvedar, Harvard Center for Connected Health
