    International Conference on Perspectives in Precision Medicine

    We are facing a paradigm change in the development of more personalised medicine. Research and commercial development in the cross field between public health, health records, biobanks, biomarkers, information and communication technologies, user perspectives and the established fields of the pharmaceutical industry are emerging growth areas.

    This International Conference on Perspectives in Precision Medicine will focus on possibilities and challenges in the cross field between pharmaceutical development, user involvement and Information and Communications Technology (ICT). The conference will introduce new cross-disciplinary research fields and bring together key stakeholders and experts in the three converging disciplines: pharmaceutical development, user involvement and ICT. The event will include keynote speakers, panel discussions, thematic round tables, site visits and relevant matchmaking activities, which hopefully can lead to new fruitful partnerships. Everyone with an interest in precision medicine, especially in the cross field between pharmaceutical development, user involvement and ICT, are welcome to attend the conference.

    The conference especially targets SMEs, researchers and anyone else who are looking into new insight and knowledge on personalised medicine, want to discover new business and research opportunities, meet potential partners, expand their network, and be inspired by a world leading pharmaceutical hub in the heart of Copenhagen.
