Driving Directions 

PMC has organized a superb program with an impressive lineup of speakers and topics.  The discussions and exchange of ideas should help catapult individualized cardiovascular medicine forward – which is desperately needed!”

-Eric J. Topol, M.D., Director, Scripps Translational Science Institute and Chief Academic Officer, Scripps Health

Cardiovascular disease remains the number one cause of death in the U.S., and will likely become the number one cause of death globally. At the same time, new understandings of individual variations are increasingly re-shaping our ability to treat various aspects of the disease.

A special report in Nature noted that, after oncology, cardiology holds the most promise in personalizing, and therefore improving, therapies.

In an unprecedented collaboration of the top organizations and voices in the field, the forthcoming conference New Frontiers in Personalized Medicine: Cardiovascular Research & Clinical Care will bring together leaders from academe, industry and government to address the critical issues facing the future of cardiovascular research and clinical care in science, business, education and policy.

At this conference, speakers and attendees will:
  • Discuss personalized medicine's current and potential impact on patient outcomes
  • Review emerging technologies and applications that may shape the field in the future
  • Learn the results of an ACC survey examining personalized medicine adoption rates among U.S. cardiologists
  • Identify barriers to adoption
  • Develop recommendations for next steps with an emphasis on actions and evidence that are needed for adoption and improved quality of patient care
