Join us at the 2nd Annual Precision Medicine Research Symposium: A Paradigm Shift in Patient Care!

This two-day event sponsored by Cornell’s Academic Integration Initiative aims to bridge the strengths in Ithaca with the clinical and technological environment in New York City. We have arranged this symposium’s sessions to leverage combined expertise from all three campuses. By collaborating, we will continue to be at the forefront of driving a preventative, data driven approach to improving patient care across all disease types.

The symposium will focus on a bench to bedside approach to patient care. Attendees will have the opportunity to present recent work, learn about funding opportunities, and initiate collaborations.

 

Session I – A Personalized Approach to Patient Care

Session II – Innovations in Healthcare Technology

Session III – From Bench to Bedside: Accelerating Clinical Research Case Studies
