Nordic Precision Medicine Forum 2017

Nordic Precision Medicine Forum will bring together those at the very forefront of precision medicine from biologists, physicians and technology developers to data scientists, patient groups, governments and diagnostics manufacturers.      

The Nordic Countries represent a unique opportunity when it comes to healthcare; boasting a wealth of data, some of the most advanced HealthTech, and being host to world leading biotech and pharma companies and universities. As such it is little surprise that the precision medicine revolution is creating such a buzz; disruptive technology, a strong economic setting and decades of social and health data collection are coming together to create the perfect storm for the future of healthcare in the region.

It is widely accepted that for the promise of precision medicine to become a reality we must work together; sharing data and research via a multi-disciplinary approach as well as cross border collaboration.

The event will cover a whole plethora of topics uncovering what the most pressing issues are. Hear Government talk about their vision for healthcare in the coming years, discover the latest technologies and how they are enabling a sea change in the way we treat patients and disease, learn more about the critical role of biomarkers and the latest diagnostics thinking.
