Genomics and Patient Privacy Conference

Friday, March 11, 2016 - 7:30am to 7:30pm
Bechtel Conference Center
  • Eventbrite link for registration
  • Registration cost covers meals

Purpose of this conference is to gather experts in genomics and privacy and investigate the role of privacy-preserving technologies in genomics data collaboration.
Research using genomics data is fraught with concerns around patient re-identification using de-identified sequence data. This has resulted in complex data sharing agreements and patient consent process. We believe that the current genomics research bottleneck is no longer within a data silo but being able to share insights across silos. 
At this conference, we will focus on the technological approaches to genomics privacy protection. Our ultimate goal is to develop a set of genomics research and collaboration tools, in coordination with our industry partners, that will not only allow patients and institutes to feel more confident about privacy protection, give better transparency and control to patients, but will also bring sophisticated risk assessment and risk management approaches to genomics.
