The December 4, 2007, workshop was moderated by Wylie Burke, chair of the Roundtable, and consisted of panel presentations in four areas: the process of translation of innovations, practical incentives and barriers to translation, translation of genomic technology at the clinical level, and opportunities and constraints for translation both within the United States and globally. A discussion period followed each panel. At the conclusion of the meeting Burke offered a summary of the day’s presentations. While various types of genomic innovation were discussed, a number of presentations focused primarily on genomic testing technologies.
