The Ohio State University Center for personalized health care invites you to attend its second national conference on Personalized Health Care, October 1-2, 2009. The theme of this years conference is Transforming Health Care Through Personalized Medicine. Topics focus on the care delivery model, applications of genetics/genomics in clinical medicine, the latest breakthroughs in science and the challenges of making personalized health care a reality. The conference will bring together academic leaders, industry experts, government policy makers and healthcare providers from around the nation to discuss the latest developments in personalized medicine research and the challenges of translating these discoveries into clinical practice.

Our keynote speakers are internationally renowned experts in personalized medicine: Dr. Ralph Snyderman and Dr. Leroy Hood. They will share their insights on the latest developments and the future of personalized medicine.

Ralph Snyderman, MD, is a Chancellor Emeritus at Duke University and founder and chairman of Proventys, Inc. From 1989 to 2004, he served as chancellor for Health Affairs and dean of the School of Medicine at Duke and led the transition of the medical center into an internationally recognized leader of academic medicine. During his tenure, Dr. Snyderman oversaw the establishment of the Duke Clinical Research Institute, the Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy and the Duke University Health System. He has played a leading role in the conception and development of prospective care, a novel approach to personalized health and an evolving model of national health care. In 2004, after stepping down as chancellor, Dr. Snyderman founded Proventys Inc., a healthcare technology company committed to advancing personalized medicine through validated predictive diagnostics delivered at the point-of-care. He has received numerous awards, including the 2007 Leadership in Personalized Medicine Award and the 2008 North American Healthcare Lifetime Achievement Award.

Leroy Hood, MD, PhD, is the president and founder of the Institute of Systems Biology. Dr. Hood is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Institute of Medicine and the National Academy of Engineering. His professional career began at Caltech where he and his colleagues pioneered four instruments — the DNA gene sequencer and synthesizer and the protein synthesizer and sequencer — which comprise the technological foundation for contemporary molecular biology. In particular, the DNA sequencer played a crucial role in contributing to the successful mapping of the human genome during the 1990s.

This conference is an international forum for discussing the emerging trends and latest developments of personalized health care research and patient care in:

Innovations in medicine and care delivery that lead to lower cost and improved effectiveness and outcomes.
Opportunities and challenges of integrating personalized health care into clinical practice and creating a value-based, patient-centric healthcare system.
The role of academic medical centers in advancing personalized health care - both research and clinical medicine.
