About the Genomic Frontiers Conference

This conference, organized at Duke University, is designed to bring together individuals with an interest in all aspects of genomics.

What makes us different?

Virtual first. As the COVID-19 pandemic has made all too clear, being virtual first means we have a global reach and global outlook. The topics are timely and engaging. The talks are designed to be shorter and accessible any time. We have attendees in almost every time zone. We have worked hard to ensure everyone has equal and free access. Advance registration is free.


Practitioners only. All the speakers are carefully chosen for their ongoing contributions to the field. Thus, when our speakers talk about a clinical trial or precision medicine or genomic models or genetic studies in Africa or an insurance claim, you know that they speak from their first-hand experience at the forefront of the field.  


Welcoming to all. Our goal is to enable people new to the field to understand and become part of the ongoing genomic revolution. We have a rich training track to learn the technologies and approaches. We also worked hard to make the conference free to attend from anywhere in world.


Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Reach out to a large and diverse audience to highlight your technology and interact with leading experts. 


The conference was made possible by the hard work of a number of people. At Duke, Eileen Smith is leading the effort along with Christine Goss and Caroline Roth. We thank our sponsors for allowing us to attract the best minds from the world over and covering the costs of attendance. 


2020 was a challenging year for all of us. Here’s to a better 2021 (with Genomic Frontiers Conference leading the way).
