The University of the Western Cape, Ghent University and the University of Missouri invite you to attend a joint symposium on Precision Medicine: Therapeutic Targets.
Precision medicine has been defined as an emerging practice of medicine that uses an individual’s genetic profile to guide decisions made about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.
This symposium has been designed to bring together researchers from UWC, Ghent and the University of Missouri to share their current work, brainstorm on needed resources including innovative data sharing and co-create opportunities for collaboration and competitive funding applications. Ultimately we hope to provide
precision medicine interventions that are more cost-effective than population-based measures and will improve health care in Africa, Europe and the United States.
