The Human Proteomics Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the BioPharmaceutical Technology Center Institute are pleased to offer this excellent symposium! The theme of this year's exciting program is Omics in Precision Medicine. Precision medicine, wherein disease treatment and prevention take individual variability into account, is increasingly recognized as the future of modern health care. The high throughput omics technologies are becoming enabling forces for precision medicine with the promise to characterize patients at a detailed molecular level. In this symposium, speakers will present the recent advances in multi-omics technologies including but not limited to genomics, proteomics and metabolomics as well as their applications to precision medicine (or precision health). Applications to various human diseases, for example, cancer and cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative diseases, will be discussed. Meeting attendees are encouraged to present their recent work in scientific poster sessions. A poster contest open to graduate students and post-doctoral researchers is included.
