Genome Research Day 2018

Overview

We’re excited to announce 23andMe’s second annual Genome Research Day, a meeting focused on human genomics and related research occurring in and around the Bay Area.

 

We are fortunate to live in a world-class hub of science, technology, and innovation. To foster more scientific exchange, we are hosting a free one-day meeting at our office in downtown Mountain View. For the keynote this year, we’re featuring a fireside chat with our CEO Anne Wojcicki.

Date: Thursday, May 17, 2018
Time: 8am – 5pm PT
Location: 23andMe, 899 W. Evelyn Ave, Mountain View, CA 94041

 

The schedule will feature talks and posters, and while we anticipate that some of those will be from 23andMe scientists, we sincerely hope that students and postdocs will submit abstracts to give talks and posters as well. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, and the meeting will finish up with a happy hour on our rooftop deck.
