2017 | 06.–07. Oktober, Potsdam
Annual Meeting of the AGD 2017
Topic: Genomic medicine for better therapies; Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Gen-Diagnostik e.V.
and Friends of the AGD,
genomics has already found its way into clinical practice. Moreover, it also
spurred the development of new personalized molecular treatment strategies.
Based on the genomic breakthroughs of the last decade translational efforts and
personalized treatments have been established in cancer clinics. Likewise,
substantial progress has been made in unravelling the genomic basis of rare
diseases and translating these discoveries into treatments. Influencing the
transcript levels or splice modulations are already approved treatments or in
advanced phase clinical trials. Particularly, manipulation of genetic modifiers
provides good opportunities to alleviate the consequences of genetic defects.
As a prerequisite, all therapeutic maneuvers rely on a fast and valid
identification of disease causing genomic variants. Thus, a swift
interpretation of whole genome sequences remains a key challenge in genomic
medicine. This meeting will provide a selection of exciting stories how genomic
findings are facilitating the introduction of new therapeutic interventions.
cordially invited to participate in the 2017 AGD meeting, held in Potsdam on
October 6 and 7, 2017. The meeting will address the above issues in four
Session 1 –
Personalized therapies in oncology
Session 2 – The genome track to therapeutic interventions
Session 3 – Transcriptomics and RNA therapeutics
Session 4 – Tackling genetic heterogeneity and clinical variability
presentations given at the meeting and from the discussions, we expect fruitful
impulses for future developments, not only in research but also in our health
We are convinced
that the meeting program is very attractive, and that the excellent speakers
will manage to inspire you and your future work. The pleasant atmosphere of the
“Seminaris SeeHotel Potsdam” and of its surroundings at the Templiner See are
ideally suited for this high-profile scientific meeting.
We are looking
forward to seeing you in Potsdam.
