Dear Colleagues,  

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the Fourth Annual Pediatric Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine Conference.  This meeting  will be focused on Genome Based Therapeutics in Children.  This sharing of knowledge will serve as a forum for world leaders in the field to come together to contribute to the safe and effective treatment of children, our most vulnerable population.  We have developed an excellent program featuring speakers from around the world to share with you the latest opportunities centering around clinical applications, bioethics, bioinformatics, and infrastructure development of pediatric personalized medicine programs.  Take a few moments to browse the program to confirm our assertions that the presentations feature a world-class group of experts that will make excellent use of our brief time together.  Please join us as we celebrate the offerings of science and exchanges that will affect our practices long after the end of this meeting in the form of new energy and ideas that will boost our efforts to improve the health of our children.  As we continue to expand our initiatives here at Children’s Mercy, we also continue to expand our collaborative efforts with other researchers regionally, nationally and internationally.  We hope you, our colleagues, will join us in these efforts.  We expect attendance will be strong and look forward to seeing you in April in Kansas City, MO.
