  Colloque Biologie et médecine du futur

Biologie et Médecine du Futur

On February 27th, Genopole is hosting an international colloquium dedicated to "Biology and The Medicine of the Future" in Paris focused on medicine and the biotechnologies dedicated to medicine.

Advances in human health have been marked by technological breakthroughs that pave the way for new applications.
Human genome sequencing led to precision medicine based on the sequencing of individual genomes. The advent of new sequencing robots combined with the Big data /Smart data duo has generalised access to reliable diagnostics and therapeutic solutions for patients.
Regenerative medicine is now offering new therapeutic solutions to correct genetic problems. Come and join us to discover how these advances are radically changing healthcare throughout the world from both a social and economic point of view and to discuss their ethical implications.
