The idea behind this conference is to transform healthcare, there needs to be an adoption of personalized medicine on a global scale. PMWC’s ambition is to help bring together organizations across multiple sectors to realize this.

The PMWC’s committee features distinguished individuals including George Church, co-developer of the Human Genome Project; Kary Mullis, Nobel laureate & inventor of PCR (polymerase chain reaction); and Brian Druker, winner of the Lasker Clinical Award for his work in developing Gleevec.
