101st Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research

Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research

Saturday, April 17, 2010
Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC

Cancer researchers, health professionals, and cancer survivors and advocates will meet in Washington, DC, for the 101st Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. This year’s meeting, themed “Conquering Cancer Through Discovery Research,” will highlight novel approaches and technologies being used in the laboratory, innovative preclinical science, clinical trial results, and more. The AACR Annual Meeting, the premier scientific meeting in cancer research, attracts over 17,000 attendees each year and covers the breadth of cancer science from basic through clinical and epidemiological research.

XGen Congress

Cambridge Healthtech Institute
Hilton San Diego Resort

March 15-16-17, 2010

Welcome to the Decade of the Genomics Revolution! Technological advances are now enabling faster and cheaper mapping of DNA/RNA allowing genomic comparisons and accelerating genomic discoveries. Cambridge Healthtech Institute is proud to launch The XGEN Congress to enable this genomic revolution. This week-long event features five conferences and demonstrates the unique cross fertilization of established genomic technologies with Now-Generation Sequencing and Quantitative PCR along with exciting applications of Copy Number Variation and Epigenetics. In addition, you will learn why data is the driving force that enables discovery at Sequencing Data Storage and Analysis.

Next-Generation Sequencing Data Analysis

Next-Generation Sequencing Data Analysis

September 21-23, 2009
Rhode Island Convention Center
Providence, RI

Data drives discovery . . . . Now-generation sequencing platforms are capable of generating gigabytes of data in a sequence run – leading to terabytes of data in a single experiment. Thus data storage, transfer, and analysis will unquestionably be the rate limiting steps in turning this new sequencing data into knowledge. CHI’s Next-Generation Sequencing Data Analysis convenes engineers who are developing the sequencing platforms, biological researchers who are designing and running the experiments, biostatisticians who are analyzing and interpreting the data, and software developers who are managing and storing the data. Each specialty provides unique perspectives and must be integrated into a cohesive, comprehensive team to decipher the sequencing data deluge.

Coverage Includes:

•Sequencing: Past, Present, and Future
•Data Generation and Beyond
•I’ve Bought my Sequencer – Now What the Heck Do I Do with the Data?
•Data Intergration Leads to Personalized Medicine
•Case Studies

September 14-17, 2009
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

This second meeting builds on last year’s presentations showing a significant milestone in human genetics – the first production of “personal genomes.” Ultra high throughput sequencing strategies have now been used to study more individual genomes – and yet few scientists, and even fewer clinical geneticists, are familiar with the implications of this new data. This meeting will address the issues of individual genomes being part of research and routine clinical medicine within the next few years.

Genotyping Tools

Genotyping Tools

June 8-9, 2009
The Fairmont Hotel
San Francisco, CA

The genetic scientific community is exploding with new robust tools which explore the connections between genotypes and phenotypes. The falling prices from developing to mature genotyping platforms, result in abundant data to interrogate and analyze. In addition, as more detailed clinical classification of patients is performed, stronger genetic associations of complex diseases are discovered. The new technical developments that enable the association of genes with disease, as well as practical examples of how these techniques are used is the emphasis of Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Second Annual Genotyping Tools: Sequencing to SNPs . . . Strategies to Success. Learn from savvy, seasoned researchers as they share their scientific strategies and success.


March 17-19, 2009
Hilton San Diego Resort
San diego, California

NEXT-GENERATION SEQUENCING is driving growth within the basic and biomedical research communities as rapidly as the bases are being sequenced. All agree, however, that with the implementation of any new technology there is a balancing act of cost-quality-quantity. The potential applications are as numerous as the samples to be analyzed. Each next-generation platform is optimized for specific sequencing applications. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Third Annual Next-Generation Sequencing offers an unparalleled opportunity to compare and contrast the next-generation sequencing platforms to best suit your research needs.

Translating Genomic Knowledge

Translating Genomic Knowledge –
Biological Discovery to Clinical Utility

June 9-10, 2009
The Fairmont Hotel | San Francisco, CA

The march of molecular genomics is progressing from the laboratory to the clinic. Within the pharmaceutical industry, applications of clinical genomics promises to enhance the discovery of drug response markers, reduce the size and expense of clinical drug trials, and provide tools for addressing regulatory approval issues. All agree that applying biological knowledge through prospective genotyping early in clinical trials is necessary, but putting the theory into practice remains a bottleneck. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Translating Genomic Knowledge: Biological Discovery to Clinical Utility expounds the driving factors that are encouraging pharmacogenetic strategy development in the pharmaceutical industry.

Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference

Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference

February 25-27, 2009
San Francisco, CA
Moscone North Convention Center

As the need for new technologies, improved strategies and competitive intelligence becomes ever more acute, CHI’s flagship event, the MOLECULAR MEDICINE TRI-CONFERENCE provides the breadth and depth of information critical to your organization’s success. The 2009 event includes ELEVEN parallel tracks that provide compelling and in-depth insight into the future of molecular medicine. These tracks add up to an indispensable conference for professionals grappling with the challenges of delivering 21st century medicine.
