Track 1: Current Focus on Personalized Medicine

Personalized medicine is an emerging practice of medicine that uses an individual's genetic profile to guide decisions made in regard to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Knowledge of a patient's genetic profile can help doctors select the proper medication or therapy and administer it using the proper dose or regimen. Used for the treatment as Personalized cancer medicine, Diabetes- related disease: risk assessment & management, Personalized medicine: New strategies and economic implications, Implications of personalized medicine in treatment of HIV, Applications of personalized medicine in rare diseases, Translational Medicine.

Track 2: Clinical aspects of Personalized Medicine in Human, Animal models

Personalized medicine is based on intraspecies differences. It is axiomatic that small differences in genetic make-up can result in dramatic differences in response to drugs or disease and Societal impact of personalized medicine. To express this in more general terms: in any given complex system, small changes in initial conditions can result in dramatically different outcomes. Despite human variability and intraspecies variation in other species, nonhuman species are still the primary model for ascertaining data for Personalized medicine health improvement in Human. We call this practice into question and conclude that human-based research should be the primary means for obtaining data about human diseases and responses to drugs. Strategies in the development and application of personalized medicine was developed for the accurate results in Personalized medicine health improvement in Human and Animal Models .

Track 3: Genetics of Ebola Outbreak

Sequence analysis of Ebola virus Genome is the second through the sixth genes of the Ebola virus (EBO) genome indicates that it is organized similarly to rhabdoviruses and paramyxoviruses and is virtually the same as Marburg virus (MBG). Scientists used genomic sequencing technologies to identify the origin and track transmission of the Ebola virus in the current outbreak in Africa. 

Track 4: Molecular Diagnostics and Therapeutics

Molecular diagnostics is a technique used to analyze biological markers in the genome and proteome, realizing the value of personalized medicine the individual's genetic code and how their cells express their genes as proteins, by applying molecular biology to medical testing. The technique is used to diagnose and monitor disease, detect risk, and decide which therapies will work best for individual patients. Therapeutics and diagnostics are useful in a range of medical specialisms, including infectious disease, oncology, human leukocyte antigen typing (which investigates and predicts immune function), coagulation, and pharmacogenomics—the genetic prediction of which drugs will work best and even leads to translational research.

Track 5: Biomarkers

In medicine, a biomarker and molecular markers are the measurable indicator of the severity or presence of some disease state. More generally a biomarker is anything that can be used as an indicator of a particular disease state or some other physiological state of an organism Drug-Diagnostic Co-Development. In the current era of stratified medicine and biomarker-driven therapies, the focus has shifted from predictions based on the traditional anatomic staging systems to guide the choice of treatment for an individual patient to an integrated approach using the genetic makeup of the tumor and the genotype of the patient. Genomics and other "omics” technologies have largely contributed to the identification and the development of biomarkers like Stratification biomarkers in personalised medicine. The recent surge in high-throughput sequencing of cancer genomes has supported an expanding molecular classification of cancer. These studies have identified putative predictive biomarkers signifying aberrant oncogene pathway activation and may provide a rationale for matching patients with molecularly targeted therapies in clinical trials. Here, we discuss some of the challenges of adapting these data for rare cancers or molecular subsets of certain cancers, which will require aligning the availability of investigational agents, rapid turnaround of clinical grade sequencing, molecular eligibility and reconsidering Personalizing clinical trials with biomarkers design and end points.

Track 6: Nanotechnology and Biotechnology

Nanotechnology ("nanotech") is the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale. The earliest, widespread description of nanotechnology referred to the particular technological goal of precisely manipulating atoms and molecules for fabrication of macroscale products, also now referred to as molecular nanotechnology. Applications of pharmaceutical nanotools, Cell based therapy, Molecular mechanisms are the techniques and tool in nano technology and biotechnology.

The human metabolome is best understood by analogy to the human genome, i.e., where the human genome is the set of all genes in a human being, the human metabolome is the set of all metabolites in a human being well understood by Role of Metabolics,   Bioinformatics, Biosensors in Personalized Medicine.

Track 7: Predictive Medicine in Pharmaceutical Analysis

Predictive medicine is a field of medicine that entails predicting the probability of disease and instituting preventive measures in order to either prevent the disease altogether or significantly decrease its impact upon the patient (such as by preventing mortality or limiting morbidity). Techniques and assays include Newborn screening, Diagnostic testing, Medical bioinformatics, Prenatal testing, Carrier testing, Preconception testing. Newborn screening is a public health program designed to screen infants shortly after birth for a list of conditions that are treatable, but not clinically evident in the newborn period. Prenatal testing: Prenatal testing is used to look for diseases and conditions in a fetus or embryo before it is born. This type of testing is offered for couples who have an increased risk of having a baby with a genetic or chromosomal disorder. Screening can determine the sex of the fetus. Prenatal testing can help a couple decide whether to abort the pregnancy. Like diagnostic testing, prenatal testing can be noninvasive or invasive. Non-invasive techniques include examinations of the woman's womb through or maternal serum screens. These non-invasive techniques can evaluate risk of a condition, but cannot determine with certainty if the fetus has a condition.

Track 8: Preventive Medicine

Preventive Medicine is practiced by all physicians to keep their patients healthy. It is also a unique medical specialty recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Preventive Medicine focuses on the health of individuals, communities, and defined populations. It is also used for the treatment for obesity, blindness.  The Epidemiology Division applies research methods to understand the patterns and causes of health and disease in the population and to translate this knowledge into programs designed to prevent disease. The division has a long history of involvement in NIH-sponsored multi-site, longitudinal cohort studies, and its faculty oversees many investigator-initiated, NIH-sponsored research projects and trials. Public trust in vaccines is a key to the success of immunization programs worldwide in the era of preventive medicine.

Track 9: Health Care Medicine and P4 Medicine

P4 Medicine is a plan to radically improve the quality of human life via biotechnology. P4 Medicine is a term coined by biologist Leroy Hood, and is short for "Predictive, Preventive, Personalized, and Participatory Medicine." The premise of P4 Medicine is that, over the next 20 years, medical practice will be revolutionized by biotechnology, to manage a person's health, instead of manage a patient's disease. Internal medicine or general medicine (in Commonwealth nations) is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Emergency medicine is a medical specialty involving care for adult and pediatric patients with acute illnesses or injuries that require immediate medical attention.

Track 10: Lifestyle Medicine

Lifestyle Medicine (LM) is the use of lifestyle interventions in the treatment and management of disease. LM is becoming the preferred modality for not only the prevention but the treatment of most chronic diseases, including Type-2 Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, Hypertension, Obesity, Insulin Resistance Syndrome, Osteoporosis, cancer prevention Also include Aerobic & Resistance exercises for patients with diabetes, Sleep and disease prevention, Intrinsic motivation and health behavior adherence.

Track 11: Genomics

Genomics is a discipline in genetics that applies recombinant DNA, DNA sequencing methods , and bioinformatics to sequence, assemble, and analyze the function and structure of genomes. Advances in genomics have triggered a revolution in discovery-based research to understand even the most complex biological systems such as the brain. The field includes efforts to determine the entire DNA sequence and human genome varivation of organisms and fine-scale genetic mapping. The field also includes studies of intragenomic phenomena such as   other interactions between loci and within the genome and metagenomics. Comparative genomics is an exciting new field of biological research in which the genome sequences of different species human, mouse and a wide variety of other organisms from yeast to chimpanzees are compared.

Track 12: Cancer Immunology & Oncology

Personalized medicine can be used to learn about a person's genetic makeup and to unravel the biology of their tumor. Using this information, doctors hope to identify prevention, screening, and treatment strategies that may be more effective and cause fewer side effects than would be expected with standard treatments. By performing more genetic tests and analysis, doctors may customize treatment to each patient's needs. Creating a personalized cancer screening and treatment plan includes: Determining the chances that a person will develop cancer and selecting screening strategies to lower the risk, Matching patients with treatments that are more likely to be effective and cause fewer side effects, Predicting the risk of recurrence (return of cancer).
