BioIT Alliance Announces Second Annual Conference and Call for Presentations.

SAN RAMON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The BioIT Alliance will hold its second Annual Conference on November 3rd, 2011 and is now accepting applications for conference presentations. This year’s Conference will focus on the intersection of health information technology and pharmaceutical research.

The BioIT Alliance’s focus is developing standards for translational medicine to drive efficiencies between medicine and research using standards in information technology. Our goal is to break down the walls that exist between disparate instruments, informatics and analytics and speed the delivery of new medicines directly to the patient.

“The BioIT Alliance Conference will allow organizations to show what they are doing in translational science and also provide a mechanism to prove out the value of standards,” said Les Jordan, BioIT Alliance President. “It will begin to answer the question ‘How can standards speed delivery of translational medicine?’”

The Conference will shed light on ways different organizations are breaking down barriers by enabling personalized medicine. It will also examine the different aspects of translational medicine, how research organizations are working to speed translational medicine and the ways technology standards can also play a role. Presentations submitted should focus on showing how translational medicine is being delivered and how information technology can play a role in speeding delivery of information. Abstracts must include the following information:

1. Name of Presenter

2. Name of Organization
