Precision Medicine and Functional Genomics
On behalf of Sidra Medicine, we invite you to the 6th annual PMFG Symposium which will be held in Doha, Qatar, on September 23-26, 2022. Over the years, the PMFG series has grown significantly in topics and diversity with a wide range of speakers and a growing audience worldwide. The event will be preceded by an outstanding Pre-Symposium Biotech Forum on 22 September, 2022.

PMFG 2022 is a four-day in-person symposium with pre- and post-conference workshops, and a satellite half-day meeting centered on two major themes:

  • How cellular, organoid, and animal models are being used to facilitate the discovery of basic disease mechanisms and potential cures
  • The development of advanced therapies to treat diseases


Objectives: 

  • Find out how National and International Programs are being developed to ensure a Precision Medicine ecosystem worldwide
  • Describe how clinical trial networking is critical for evaluating advanced treatments in pediatric, rare disorders
  • Describe the recent applications of Precision Medicine approaches in Pediatric Cancer Immunotherapy
  • Learn about novel technologies driving recent advances in the field of translational genomics
  • Learn about recent efforts using animal, cellular, and organoid models for human disease modeling

Event Chairs: 

  • Chiara Cugno, MD, Director, Advanced Cell Therapy Core
  • Luis R. Saraiva, PhD, Director, Laboratory of Neurometabolism and Functional Genomics
