Sequencing the Genome: Examining Modern Medicine

Our DNA is a chemical alphabet of A, T, C and G, which together create the book of life. The mapped human genome has opened up incredible possibilities and scientists say we’re on the cusp of the golden age of genomic-based, personalized medicine.

How is the genetic roadmap empowering the medical community to find breakthrough treatments? Where is personalized medicine headed? What are the issues that we as a society should anticipate moving forward?  

At a forum in New York, The Atlantic will gather key stakeholders in this conversation to discuss the future of the genomic era.

Moderated by

  • Steve Clemmons, Washington Editor At Large, The Atlantic
