Personalised medicine: hope or hype?

July 25, 2016 2:15 - 3:30 pm


Personalised medicine has the potential to revolutionise healthcare through more effective prevention, diagnosis and treatment. In an era of an ageing population and escalating healthcare costs, the research community is making great efforts to better characterise genomic complexity and to develop better tools. We will shed light on how recent scientific advances in genomics, epidemiology and experimental biology can be combined with new technology to lead to more targeted therapies. 

We will explore questions such as: “Can the genomic dissection of traits lead to better treatments?”, “How can modelling help in the prediction of outcomes?”, “What lessons can we draw from targeted radiotherapy in cancer?”, “What are the challenges in the context of public health?”, “How can patient centred practise benefit from the advancement of genomics?”
