The conference focuses on best practice examples for successful implementation of personalised medicine approaches and will take place in Berlin on November 20-21.
High-level speakers such as Jean-Eric Paquet (Director-General - Directorate "Research and Innovation" at the European Commission), Marian Harkin (Member of the European Parliament), Anja Karliczek (German Federal Minister of Education and Research) and Jens Spahn (German Federal Minister of Health) have confirmed their participation.
Best practice sessions on research and implementation will give successful examples for translation of personalised medicine research into an added value for the patient, such as personalised medicine approaches for rare diseases and cancer in Sweden or the implementation of personalised lung cancer care in clinical routine in Germany. This will be done in a comprehensive approach, giving room for representatives of all relevant steps to describe their views and experiences, e.g. researchers, clinicians, payers and patients.
Further sessions will encompass examples for policy making and impact analysis on personalised medicine research from the ICPerMed member states. High-level key note talks on different aspects of personalised medicine will broaden up the conference perspective and provide international views on personalised medicine in China and India.
