Registration for NINR’s “Precision Health: From ‘Omics’ to Data Science” Boot Camp opens April 3, 2017 at 12 p.m. ET. Registration will close when the course is full, so register early. The Boot Camp will address the latest advances in genomics, pharmacogenomics, nutrigenomics, metabolomics, microbiomics, and data science as well as the associated ethical, legal, and social implications of precision health. The Boot Camp will take place August 7-11, 2017, on the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD.
This year’s Boot Camp will address the impact of precision health on health care and society and will feature lectures by distinguished guest speakers, discussion groups, and case studies of targeted strategies. Accelerated advances in the “omics” sciences, biotechnology, and data science are driving precision health and the All of Us Research Program. Precision health encompasses these sciences as well as health information technology and will enable unprecedented opportunities in research focused on targeted prevention and treatment strategies with the goal of improving patient outcomes. These strategies will be based on individual variability in each person’s genes, environment, and lifestyle and will be enriched with information from health records.
Graduate students, faculty, and clinicians who are citizens or permanent U.S. residents may register. NINR’s Boot Camp is open to all disciplines; you do not have to be a nurse scientist to participate. For more information or to register, please visit www.ninr.nih.gov/bootcamp.
