Former President Barack Obama headlines the inaugural in-person Illumina Genomics Forum, slated to start next Wednesday and run through Oct. 1 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. But President Obama “chooses where he would and wouldn’t like to speak,” said Kathryne Reeves, chief marketing officer for Illumina. “I don’t know if Barack Obama has a point of view on genomics,” said Reeves. Gates is expected to focus on innovation and the role of genomics in fighting off the next global pandemic. “The genesis of his talk will be around how genomics is supporting and accelerating global health,” said Jerry Steele, director of content for Illumina.
