The Business of Precision Medicine - Visioning the Future

The Bionow Precision Medicine Conference, will focus on the impact which this exciting area has on patients and given the strengths in the North, will also examine precision medicine as a key tool in reducing the North / South economic differential.

Precision Medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. This approach allows doctors and researchers to predict more accurately which treatment and prevention strategies for a particular disease will work best in specific groups of people. P4 Medicine will further revolutionise medicine and build upon the opportunity to deliver care which is Predictive, Preventive, Personalised and Participatory.

We are delighted to have Professor Sir Munir Pirmohamed, Head of Department of Molecular and Clinical Pharmacology at the University of Liverpool and NHS Chair of Pharmacogenetics giving the Keynote Address at the conference.
