The HudsonAlpha-Science Conference on Immunogenomics will bring together preeminent leaders and thinkers at the intersection of genomics and immunology. The event offers a dynamic program covering the major themes of this emerging scientific field. Immunogenomics 2014 sits at the heart of the movement toward 'personalized' medicine and the use of DNA sequencing to improve disease diagnosis and treatment. More information, including registration and sponsorships, can be found here.
The science program covers eight topics: genetic and epigenetic regulation of the immune system; genetic regulation of pathogen sensing; the microbiome; the genetics and epigenetics of complex disease; functional genomics; immunodiversity and individual responses to immune challenges; medical genomics, clinical applications, and immunotherapy; and insights into immune system function in monogenic diseases.
