#GET2015

Historic Event

At the inaugural GET Conference in 2010, we brought together the first pioneers with access to their own personal genomes and hosted an intimate gathering to debate the technical, commercial, and societal impacts of affordable DNA sequencing. We knew then that the rapid pace of technological development meant that within a year, it would be impossible to get everyone with a personal genome sequence on one stage again. We find ourselves at another historic marker.

Agenda and Sessions

Within a few years millions of people will have their genomic data. Multiple countries have embarked on mega-cohort initiatives aiming to advance precision medicine and the health of their populations. What are the opportunities to realize social benefits that exceed these enormous investments?

We will explore this and more across several sessions:


Celebration

This year we are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Personal Genome Project and the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Human Genome Project. This gathering will bring together pioneers, pathbreakers and thought leaders from around the world in an intimate setting (100 invited guests, 15 speakers).

About the GET Conference

The GET Conference brings together leading thinkers to discuss how we measure and understand people and their traits. For the past five years, this event has explored the frontiers of understanding about human biology and serves as an annual forum to debate the technical, commercial, and societal impacts.

The GET Conference is produced by PersonalGenomes.org, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in the United States whose mission is to make a wide spectrum of human biological information accessible and actionable to increase biological literacy and improve human health. We support groundbreaking initiatives including the Personal Genome Project, the Open Humans Network and the GET Conference.

Co-Organizers

GET Global 2015 is co-organized by the CeMM Center for Molecular Medicine, Medical University of Vienna, Genom Austria & PersonalGenomes.org.
