Press Week for science writers, reporters and editors

Press Week presents briefings on the latest advances in genetics, public policy and biomedical research directly from worldwide leaders of the research and clinical communities. This year the sessions will be focused on two of the most significant themes in research today:

  • Individualized medicine and genetic diagnosis -- designing treatments to address each patient's unique genetic makeup

  • Complex traits and gene networks -- sorting out the hundreds of genetic interactions that lead to cancers, heart disease, diabetes and other lethal diseases

In past years Press Week has been held during the second week of the Short Course. This year, to take advantage of the many prestigious scientists who now attend the first week of the Short Course, we've moved to a Wednesday-to-Wednesday schedule. Invited speakers include: Eddy Rubin, M.D., Ph.D., Joint Genome Institute, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory John Yates, Ph.D., The Scripps Research Institute Marc Vidal, Ph.D., Center for Cancer Systems Biology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Center for Cancer Systems Biology Josh Mendell, M.D., Ph.D., Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Rando Allikmets, Ph.D., Columbia University Richard Weinshilboum, M.D., Mayo Clinic Gary Churchill, Ph.D., The Jackson Laboratory and the Center for Genome Dynamics Robert Nussbaum, M.D., National Human Genome Research Institute Phil Reilly, M.D., J.D, Interleukin Genetics, Inc. Peter Goodfellow, Ph.D., deCODE Genetics

Press Week is open to professional science writers, reporters and editors, including freelancers, who work for news media or have published science books. There is no charge to participate in Press Week; however, travel, accommodations and expenses are participants' responsibility.

Lodging special: A block of rooms has been reserved for Press Week participants at the historic Bar Harbor Inn for $99 per
