A Message from the 2018 Program Committee Chair
It is my honor to invite you to attend the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) 2018 Annual Meeting & Expo from November 1-3, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas. Please also plan to join us for a full day of Corporate Workshops on Wednesday, October 31. AMP is the leading organization in the field of molecular diagnostics, and our meeting is the “premier gathering” of molecular professionals.
The theme of our meeting this year will be, "Precision Medicine Starts Here”. The Precision Medicine Initiative of the National Institutes of Health defines precision medicine as "an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person." For an increasing number of diseases across a wide variety of medical specialties, the one-size-fits-all approach to patient diagnosis and treatment is becoming obsolete. Molecular professionals lead the way in developing and applying new technologies to achieve the best patient care and outcome in this rapidly evolving field. We also play a vital role in educating our clinical colleagues, lay public, and elected officials of the value of the critical work that we do.
Our Program Committee has been working hard to plan a comprehensive program, which we hope will encourage dialogue and foster discussion amongst attendees. This website will be updated as more information becomes available. Please be sure to check back for all the latest information. We look forward to seeing you in November!
On behalf of the 2018 AMP Program Committee,
Lynne V. Abruzzo, MD, PhD
