  Cambridge Healthtech Institute, McLean, Virginia
April 2-4, 2001

Without doubt the Human Genome Project has taken several giant steps into the twenty-first century, both for science and for self-knowledge. As its fruits fall into our hands, it is important to acknowledge the remarkable efforts and insights that made this happen. We should also note that despite this outstanding success, many new questions have concomitantly emerged. Beneath this new gestalt, we now face a more complicated view of ourselves. Logically, on this incremental path to self-advancement, we now confront the Proteome. Our main goal is to actuate public and private energies to fuse into a single panoply. Consensual and careful planning at the outset will harness the naturally occurring forces of politics and markets, technology and pure research. Underscoring the sine qua non status of cooperation, round-table discussions are planned in plenary session. These will be moderated by respected independent figures. The politics of inclusion will be front and center at all times.
