About Us

Precision Medicine in Autoimmunity is a new, international conference on autoimmunity.  It focuses on the growing impact personalized medicine can have for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of autoimmune diseases, and is designed as an intense state-of-the-art meeting with few selected focus topic areas.

The first Precision Medicine in Autoimmunity conference was hosted October 2018 in Denver, CO.  This first conference focused on precision medicine in rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and the antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. The conference was opened by a keynote presentation from Harry Glorikian who spoke on the general role of digital health in precision medicine. More than 20 experts from around the world presented on disease-specific advances related to precision medicine. The PMA conference was attended by around 120 clinicians, scientists and members of industry and was quite well-received.  

Based on the success of the first meeting and the growing interest in this area of precision medicine, we are proud to announce our 2nd PMA Conference in Denver, CO, March 11-13, 2020.  The scientific program is currently under development, but in addition to Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), we will have speakers on precision medicine in inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis + psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis.

We hope to see you in Denver in March of 2020 for this important event!
