In a close partnership with the ISCB, the 2009 AMIA Summit on Translational Bioinformatics Meeting held from March 15-17 in San Francisco / California, will be an indispensible gathering for translational bioinformatics research and development worldwide.

This Summit highlights the multidisciplinary nature of this research field and provides a unique opportunity to bring together the finest minds in translational informatics from the academia, industry, government and non-profit sectors. It aims to forge new trans-disciplinary collaborations and identify potential avenues of research and development across all areas of human diseases and patient care.

ISCB is organizing two sessions at this conference: A high profile speakers session on March 16 chaired by Burkhard Rost, with invited speakers Russ Altman, Andrej Sali and Olga Troyanskaya, and a special session on March 17 organized by Christopher Baker and Dietrich Rebholz focused on the interpretation of mutations with semantic support.

The Summit is recognized by ISCB and AMIA as the key venue for the exchange of ideas in translational bioinformatics, and we encourage biomolecular and clinical informaticians, geneticists, computational biologists, biologists, clinicians, technologists, computer scientists and public health scientists to take advantage of this opportunity.

We hope this Summit will be a stimulating and informative experience and a testimony to the commitment of this research community to work together on unified interests to catalyze biomolecular discoveries and innovations relevant to medical research and patient care.
