The Golden Helix Symposia

The Concept
The Golden Helix Symposia series are named after the house of Francis Crick (“The Golden Helix”; 19/20 Portugal Place, Cambridge, UK) to emphasize their focus on human genomics and personalized medicine. The topic of these symposia revolves around the fields of genomic and personalized medicine. In particular, these symposia series have the following features:

  • Symposia topics are selected by Golden Helix Institute’s International Advisory Council of distinguished research scientists from academia, government, and industry.
  • New and often ground- breaking science is presented at every meeting.
  • Symposia range in length from 2 to 3 days
  • Average attendance is 200 participants, with attendance ranging from 180 to 250 participants coming from various countries worldwide.
  • Scientific excellence is ensured where important collaborations are formed, careers are enhanced, and new scientific breakthroughs are presented
  • Participants are staff scientists, post-doctoral fellows and students from academia, working in the field of personalized research, and scientists from pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, government agencies and private and research foundations,
  • Conference venues are usually prestigious locations in major cities or summer retreats in Southern Mediterranean or Eastern regions
