Harnessing the Power of the Genome to Meet Medicine’s Greatest Challenges
The College of Physicians and Surgeons will bring together its leading scientists and clinicians for a lively discussion on precision medicine. The program will focus on pediatrics, cardiac programs, and medicine, among other areas, and will highlight our leadership and groundbreaking research in precision medicine as we develop the innovative techniques that will lead to targeted therapies to improve patient care.
