Precision Medicine World Conference

Date: January 25, 2023 - January 27, 2023

Sidra Medicine is proud to be a part of the Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC) in Silicon Valley, California from 25-27 January.

We will be showcasing how our academic healthcare organization has made precision medicine a reality and how we have used our genomics know-how to transform patient care.

Let’s Collaborate:

We are a hub for biomedical research to advance the understanding of epidemiology and mechanisms of diseases, develop preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic tools, and to improve the health outcomes for our female and pediatric patients. We would love to collaborate with you, if this is your organization’s strategy too! Find out more about our research plans here.

Precision Medicine Functional Genomics 2023
10 -15 November 2023
Doha, Qata

Join our flagship Precision Medicine Functional Genomics (PMFG) conference from 10-15 November in Qatar, where we will explore the latest developments and innovations in functional genomics, genetics and other ‘omic’ tools. Be a part of the conversation on how cutting-edge discoveries have translated into precision medicine solutions.

Now in its eighth year, PMFG 2023 will be an in-person event which will include pre- and post-conference workshops.  Major conference highlights and themes include:

  • Young Scientists Symposium
  • Using omics and advanced technologies, including genome-editing, to functionally characterize genes, model disorders, and elucidate disease mechanisms.
  • Novel tools and therapies for precision medicine and public health to prevent, diagnose and treat human diseases
  • The growing role of large-scale population genomic programs in creating global genome variation maps and identifying novel genes linked to human traits
