"Sixth annual Presidency conference 27-28 March"

Personalised medicine is in the news more-and-more often these days, with its goal of giving the right treatment to the right patient at the right time.

Breakthroughs in genetics, calls for more and better screening, developments in imaging techniques and the emergence of what we now call 'Big Data' have already changed the world of healthcare for ever.

The European Alliance for Personalised Medicine's sixth annual conference will, like the first five editions and the inaugural Congress last year in Belfast, pull together leading experts in the arena drawn from patient groups, payers, healthcare professionals plus industry, science, academic and research representatives.

The theme this year will be 'Personalised Medicine and the Big Data Challenge' and the conference will once again be held in the historic Bibliothèque Solvay in Brussels.

The Brussels-based Alliance is tasked with engaging with institutions, such as the European Commission, Parliament and Council, as well as Member State governments. Its diversity is key and has a significant effect on persuading cross-disciplinary stakeholders to leave their silos, communicate and cooperate at a high level.
