Parc Científic de Barcelona (Auditori Antoni Caparrós)


We are all unique. Our health is determined by our genome combined with our lifestyles and environment. By joining information about our genome with other clinical and diagnostic information, patterns can be identified and help to determine our individual risk of developing disease, detect illness earlier and determine the most effective interventions to improve our health.


Personalized medicine is making an impact in the fields of oncology, pharmacology, rare and undiagnosed diseases, and infectious disease and in many cases refining an individual’s clinical care.


In this meeting we bring together scientists in the field who have developed their research in collaboration with the CNAG-CRG and who will present their latest research discoveries and ideas on the topic.
