- An Integrated Roadmap to Embed Personalised Medicine in European Health Systems
European researchers have been at the forefront of major scientific healthcare discoveries in areas such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, genetic disorders, and infectious disease. The undeniable challenge is how best to translate this knowledge and expertise into medical advances that improve outcomes and enhance wellbeing for European patients? The European Alliance for Personalised Medicine (EAPM) recognises that translational research is a key enabler of the European Union research effort and represents the conduit through which European discovery science can be converted into new diagnostics, treatments, products and approaches that benefit European citizens and society.

- About PerMed’s Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA)
Personalised medicine (PM) represents one of the most innovative new concepts in biomedical research and healthcare. It holds the promise of more effective early diagnosis, better and lesstoxic treatments and improved medical services for patients. It also can serve as a potent engine to drive economic growth. The aim of PM is to generate and implement innovations in diagnosis, therapy, prevention and ICT with economic value and fair access for citizens.

- Shaping Europe's Vision for Personalised Medicine - Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA)
PM approaches, particularly for diagnosis and treatment of cancer and rare diseases, are already being implemented. However, development and implementation of PM approaches for other diseases and many aspects of healthcare delivery is still far from being a reality. Thus further PM implementation will need a paradigm shift for all citizens, researchers and national healthcare systems.
