The GET Conference brings together leading thinkers to discuss how we measure and understand people and their traits.
By invitation only. April 25th.
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 Global Network of Personal Genome Projects, Open Humans and the GET Conference.
We will explore this and more across several sessions:
The GET Conference is preceded by a uniquely interactive program called GET Labs, which has two features: 1) Interactive Labs for participants brings together a cohort of highly-characterized, informed participants and a global network of collaboration-minded researchers who wish to study them. 2) Expo for researchers is a forum where toolmakers and companies that support participatory health studies showcase their products, services, platforms and share know-how.
Call for Research Studies and Service Providers: We are now inviting applications from researchers, toolmakers, & companies who would like to attend the 2016 GET Labs event. For more information, see Lab page.
During the evening of April 25th, we will have our inaugural GETy Awards ceremony honoring people and projects that have displayed excellence in participant-centered research. There are seven award categories: Communications, Diversity, Governance, Participant Pioneers, People’s Choice, Sharing and Toolmakers. For details and to nominate, please visit the GETy Awards page.
