The first in a new series of events identifying major social challenges around personalised medicine – developing new knowledge, tools and solutions.

The idea behind personalised medicine is both simple and powerful: delivering the right treatment to the right patient at the right time. Realising these visions requires both improved scientific knowledge of human disease and illnesses, but also forging of new forms of dialogue, relations and partnerships across often complex landscapes of contemporary healthcare systems. The aim of this new event series is to identify major social challenges surrounding personalised medicine, and develop new knowledge, tools, and solutions about how they might be breached.

Our inaugural event on 21st March 2019 brings together renowned speakers from various backgrounds to reflect on what they consider acute challenges surrounding realisation of personalised medicine in healthcare systems, drawing on their expertise and experience from the social sciences and humanities, clinical research, industry, healthcare professions, and health policy. We particularly welcome patients and the public to the event. Tickets are free of charge, but must be booked in advance.
