Personalized Medicine Summit

Date: June 7-9, 2015

Location: Life Sciences Institute, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC

The intent of this summit is to make recommendations on the best practices for the implementation of Personalized Medicine (PM) in British Columbia and Canada.  In many ways BC constitutes an ideal testing ground for putting a Personalized Medicine programme into practice, with its highly integrated single payer health care system, its ethnically diverse, well educated population, and its advanced expertise in the development and application of molecularly-based medicine.

Hosted by: Life Science Institute, University of British Columbia, in partnership with the Personalized Medicine Initiative, GenomeBC and LifeScience BC.
