“Just overall very impressed with how well the technical and the clinical came together. Very relevant.”2016 AGBT Precision Health Attendee

“I came away with a renewed passion for the work we do..It was a great opportunity to meet people who are in the same field, but interact in different roles.” —2016 AGBT Precision Health Attendee

“I loved the high scientific content and the intimate nature of the meeting. Everyone was accessible.” —2016 AGBT Precision Health Attendee


 “ In divergence with other conferences of analogous names, this conference had a more robust scientific content, rather than commercial/advertising, and this could become its real strength.” —2016 AGBT Precision Health Attendee



Based on the remarkable success of the original technology-focused AGBT meeting – and with an eye towards facilitating the emergence of a new era of precision medicine – The Genome Partnership launched AGBT-Precision Health , a new conference that debuted in September of 2016, in Scottsdale, Arizona. This new meeting brought together leading genomics researchers, healthcare professionals, and healthcare industry stakeholders to rigorously explore exciting developments at the interface of genomics, medicine, and health.  We aim to enable the passing of the torch from pioneering researchers and developers of genome technologies to first movers in healthcare who are establishing cutting edge standard of care applications of genome technology in every day clinical practice.
