NH Bloom hotel, Rue Royale, Koningsstraat 250, 1210 Brussels, Belgium
This conference will bring together experts from around the world to discuss the potential of genomics in the prevention, diagnostics, and therapy for cancer and the new opportunities it may bring for citizens and patients in the EU.
The discussions will also highlight challenges to the implementation and uptake of genomics-based screening and diagnosis in health systems and map the appropriate actions.
The focus will be on supporting patient-centric policies, covering important aspects such as quality assurance, ownership and security of the genetic information produced, ethics and the impact of the genomics market on healthcare systems.
The conference will promote cross-disciplinary interactions between specialists in genetics and genomics, health professionals, decision-makers, patient organisations and other relevant stakeholders.
