8-9 May 2024 | Dubai World Trade Centre

Call for submissions: Precision GenQuest

Empowering the next generation of scientists!

Deadline to enter: 15 April 2024

Precision GenQuest is an initiative dedicated to PhD and Masters degree students, inviting them to present their research at PrecisionMed Exhibition & Summit. Students are encouraged to present their findings in a visually compelling manner to a highly targeted audience of scientists, researchers, and visionaries.

Precision GenQuest takes place at PrecisionMed Exhibition & Summit (PMES), at the Precision GenQuest Zone and is the culmination of abstract submissions in line with the scientific conference’s four main pillars. The programme aims to promote the importance of ongoing research for the purpose of advancing precision medicine applications in real life situations.

Submit your abstract:

  • Student research will be on display in a prominent position on the show floor for all attendees to view on May 8 and 9.

  • Receive a complimentary delegate pass to PMES for full access to the scientific conference.

  • Discuss your research and collaborate with leading scientists and experts throughout the event.
  • Explore potential career opportunities with industry leaders throughout the event.

The Programme features four main pillars of submission:

Healthy Populations

Emphasising screening at scale, newborn/pre-born screening programmes, population genomics and government legislation.

Lifestyle Intervention & Disease Prevention

Exploring real-world applications of how “prevention is the new cure”, which nations excel in longevity and how biotherapeutics can contribute to disease prevention

Clinical Genomics

Highlighting the application of scientific research in the clinical setting, by examining how genomics is reshaping treatment plans and its role in rare diseases and cancers.

AI in Precision Medicine

Delving into the prominent role of artificial intelligence in healthcare. Exploring AI’s contributions to precision medicine, ethical considerations, and regulatory limitations

Deadline to Enter Precision GenQuest Programme is 15 April, 2024

The event’s panel of judges, composed of leading experts and luminaries within the scientific community, will evaluate the submissions based on criteria such as:

  • Originality
  • Clarity of presentation
  • Scientific merit
  • Potential impact within the relevant field
Please attach a word or pdf document

AMBASSADORS TO THE 4 PILLARS

Precision GenQuest is divided into 4 pillars, each pillar is represented by an Ambassador to champion the submissions.

Healthy Populations

Dr. Julie Decock
Scientist, Qatar Biomedical Research Institute

We welcome abstracts related to prenatal and newborn screening, adult population genetic screening and national genome initiatives.

Lifestyle intervention and disease prevention:

Prof. George P. Patrinos
Professor and Head of Laboratory; Editor-in-Chief, The Pharmacogenomics Journal, University of Patras

Contributions related to: Genetic tests for health and disease management and prevention, ie personalized therapeutics, individualised diets, ethics for lifestyle genomics, economic evaluation for genome guided interventions.

Clinical Genomics

Mohamed Nagy
Head of Personalised Medication Management Unit, Children’s Cancer Hospital, Egypt

Call for PhD projects in Clinical Genomics like next-generation sequencing and CRISPR-based gene editing. Participants may explore the application of genomics in disease diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, with a focus on rare diseases, cancer genomics, and personalized medicine. Ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of clinical genomics are also anticipated, covering issues like patient privacy and genetic discrimination. Moreover, integration challenges of genomic medicine into healthcare systems may be addressed. This competition serves as a platform for students to present research crucial for advancing genomic medicine.

AI in Precision Medicine

Dr. Min S. Park
CSO, Sanimed International

For AI in Precision Medicine the candidates will explore the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and healthcare. We are expecting AI applications in personalized diagnosis and treatment selection, predictive modelling for disease progression, and drug discovery. Additionally, posters may focus on the integration of AI into clinical decision support systems, patient stratification based on molecular data, and the ethical implications of AI-driven precision medicine. Emerging areas like AI-driven medical imaging analysis and natural language processing for electronic health record mining may also be highlighted. Overall, the competition provides a platform for students to showcase innovative research in AI’s role in advancing precision medicine.
