UC San Francisco experts will showcase how taking a precision medicine approach helped to combat the COVID-19 pandemic during the Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC) on June 14-18. A number of sessions also address general trends in precision medicine, from basic science to implementation.

UCSF faculty will be among leading experts from academia, government, and the pharmaceutical industry to highlight the integration of data, molecular science, community engagement, and public health collaborations that have paved the way to the abatement of infections. 

Established in 2009 and co-hosted by UCSF, PMWC is considered the premier gathering in the field. The earlier conference in January, drew more than 10,000 registrants from 101 countries. Registration for the virtual conference is free and open to anyone.
