The future of cancer treatment: personalised medicine and how it is revolutionising patient care

19 October 2017 Education Centre, 1st Floor, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, Mindelsohn Way, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2GW

‘Personalised medicine’ is a way of providing treatments and healthcare tailored to individual patients rather than using a ‘one-size fits all’ approach. Scientific advances, such as whole genome sequencing and wearable technologies, give scientists and medics more data. This helps medical teams and patients make better decisions on which treatments might work best for them. At this event, hear from researchers, clinicians and patients about:

  • Personalised medicine and what it means for you
  • What ‘big data’ means and how we’ll use this information
  • How using this approach benefits cancer patients.

Put your questions to the expert panel and take part in a debate chaired by Professor Dion Morton, Director of West Midlands Genomic Medicine Centre.

This event is free to attend. Refreshments will be provided and there will be an opportunity to browse information stands. For full event details and to register your place, please visit Eventbrite or if you have any queries, please contact Debbie.Ringham@cancer.org.uk
