Summary:
The 2005 conference, "The Genomic Revolution: Implications for Treatment and Control of Infectious Disease," attracted scientists, engineers, and medical researchers to work on new interdisciplinary responses using genomics to treat and control infectious diseases. Eleven conference working groups gave the participants eight hours to develop new research approaches to problems in infectious disease using genomics.  Read more...

Description: 1 online resource (xiv, 118 pages)
Contents: Working group summaries --
Technology --
Identify what technological advances in the fields of science and engineering need to be developed (either new technology or novel integration of existing technologies) to improve rapid response to new or emerging diseases --
Develop an inexpensive (and cost-effective) diagnostic test that could be deployed in countries with little scientific research infrastructure --
Vaccines/genomic analysis and synthesis --
How would you spend $100 million over the next five years to prevent the next pandemic flu? --
How can genomics facilitate vaccine development? --
Diagnosis --
Develop a device to rapidly and sensitively detect and identify pathogens in an environment or population, spread either naturally or through deliberate acts --
Are there shared pathways of attack that might provide new avenues of prevention? --
Explore the emerging role of public health in integrating genomics in surveillance, outbreak investigations and control and prevention of infectious diseases --
Natural variation --
What will it take to sequence an individual's genome for under $1,000 in less than 10 years? --
How can we use natural variation in disease resistance to understand host pathogen interactions and devise new therapies?
Other Titles: National Academies Keck Futures Iniatiative working group summaries
Responsibility: the National Academies Keck Futures Initiative.

Eleven conference working groups gave the participants eight hours to develop new research approaches to problems in infectious disease using genomics. Among the challenges were designing a new device to detect viral and bacterial pathogens; how best to use $100 million to prevent a future pandemic flu outbreak; how to improve rapid response to an outbreak of disease and reduce the cost of diagnostic tests; and how to sequence an individual's genome for under $1,000. Representatives from public and private funding organizations, government, industry, and the science media also participated in the working groups. This book provides a summary of the conference working groups. For more information about the conference, visit www.keckfutures.org/genomics."@en ;
