HIMSS Middle East UAE eHealth Week 2017
Call for Papers for GenoME Conference Now Open!

Earlier this year, the UAE Government announced plans to create a genome database and reference dictionary for all genetic diseases in the UAE, signalling the dawn of a new era in medicine where DNA profiling and genome sequencing will lead in the bid for personalized and better clinical care. 

At the UAE eHealth Week this November, the GenoME Conference will discuss the challenges, practicality and solutions surrounding genomics. 

We invite you to submit your paper and share your case studies on 13 November in Dubai. Paper topics we are seeking for:

  • Genomics based diagnostics - a focus on clinical usage and the utility applied to specific disease areas can be highlighted
  • Low cost and large scale genome screening

Download the submission template here and submit your paper to pheung@himss.org by 11th August 2017, Friday.

About the GenoME Conference

First introduced to Middle East in 2016, HIMSS Middle East's GenoME Conference discusses all current topics and upcoming trends within genomics research and personalized medicine. 

Nearly 15 years ago, the mystery of the genome was unlocked to capture the imagination of humanity. Now researchers are taking the potential of the genome and translating it into medical progress.  

Personal variations in the human genome can determine the risk of cancer, genetic disease and the efficacy of medication. To enable this transformation, researchers, clinicians and technologists need incredible collaborative and computing platforms to share knowledge and to speed genome sequencing. 

The GenoME Conference will launch a powerful International event that gathers these key leaders. Genomics researchers will bring forward the latest in biomarkers and signatures that lead the way to isolating disease in its earliest stages. Innovators will capture the latest research and continue to drive down the average cost per genome. Clinicians will focus the incredible complexity of genomics into practical applications in healthcare.
