Personalized Health Care : From Research to Impact
Palais des Congrès de Montréal
At the dawn of the twenty-first century, the most recent research in molecular biology, advances in genomics, and the resources available due to technological advances in data management enabled the development of a more specific medical approach focusing on the individual genetic make-up and his or her environment.
This P4 Medicine (personalized, predictive, preventive and participatory health care) is expected to redefine health care management. However, the application of such a medical approach also raises certain questions regarding technological, financial, ethical and legal issues, as well as the integration of this approach into health systems already in place. The 1st International Congress on Personalized Health Care will be held in Montreal from June 12 to 14, 2016 in order to review all these questions and to evaluate the utility of this form of medicine.
The aim of this world première is to bring together more than 1000 specialists, researchers, academics, clinicians, managers, economists, representatives of patient associations, ethicists and experts from the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, information and communication technology (ICT) in health and medical technology fields in order to share ideas and pool resources with regards to the development of personalized medicine.
Based on the presence of renowned speakers and supported by a call for papers process designed to take the pulse of the international community, the program proposes three days of discussion, training and networking.
