We are pleased with the great showing of interest and support for our upcoming meeting on May 9-10th, at the New York Genome Center. With mounting enthusiasm for the meeting now on the horizon, we are posting an update with the most recent developments.
The agenda is now online, and includes scientific talks, discussions about roadmaps for GP-write including scientific direction, technology development, ethical, social and legal engagement, standards and infrastructure development amongst others. Specific meetings will be organized around a press briefing and funding. The agenda (click here to view) identifies invited and confirmed speakers and their affiliations, and provides detail regarding the panels and their content.
At the meeting, we will be using the event App, Attendify, to stimulate conversation and discussion amongst attendees and the community in response to presentations or panels. Attendify will also enable great promotional opportunities for our sponsors. Many thanks to those of you who have expressed an interest in sponsoring GP-write. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please let us know as soon as possible!
Finally, we invite you to submit Abstracts for additional GP-write pilot projects by the end of April. At the May meeting, scientists whose pilots have been selected will have the opportunity to give a 3-5 minute “elevator pitch” to the community to present their ideas.
