ScienceOnline & Genomic Medicine

Science Online, held every year in North Carolina, is the the BEST event for experiencing everything related to online science. The conference kicks off tomorrow morning (January 19th) and offers three packed days of sessions, conversations, and fun events! You can learn more about the ScienceOnline in this recent post, ScienceOnline2012 – the Unconference, the Community.

This year at Science Online, I have the great pleasure of participating in a session on topics in the area of genomic medicine with Sandra Porter (@digitalbio, of Digital World Biology). Sandy and I have a fun hour planned for everyone - including a skit, real 23andMe data, and some suggestions of online resources (for everyone from researchers and journalists to patients and their physicians)  to learn more about genetics, personalized medicine, diseases, issues, and more.

We are also thrilled to welcome Misha Angrist (@mishaangrist) from the Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy at Duke University to the session where he'll share his perspectives on this topic during the session. Don't forget that you can catch Misha Wednesday night at The Regulator Bookshop (720 9th St., Durham, NC) for a reading a book signing of his book, Here Is a Human Being (which is a great read, btw!) . Session description:

Genomic Medicine: From Bench to Bedside
Saturday January 21, 2012 1:00pm - 2:00pm @ Room 6

This session will serve as an introduction to the topic of personalized medicine from the perspective of major stakeholders including: scientists, physicians, patients and their advocates, community groups and media professionals. We’ll begin with an introduction to the basic concepts and efforts in this area, followed by a discussion of information resources to serve stakeholder groups including relevant clinical, consumer health, and advocacy and policy resources. Various initiatives by government agencies, the commercial sector and academia will be discussed, including: Genetics Home Reference, 23andMe, PatientsLikeMe, and more.

I'll also be chatting about data, the Semantic Web, VIVO and more.  Details about these other sessions are available here. If you can't attend the meeting, don't worry - there will be a very active online component.  Follow the meeting at #scio12 on Twitter.
