Component Type: Session

Precision medicine is the present and future of tailored therapies. This session covers 3 important aspects of precision medicine: 1) Precision in genome editing using e.g. Crisp/Cas technology allows us to modify cells and use them to treat cancer, infectious disease and hematological conditions. 2) With precision medicine, treatment choice and benefit-risk assessment will have to rely on new and more individualised methods, such as generalised pairwise comparisons of patient outcomes. 3) Genomics on a population scale may be used to identify individual disease risks and suitability of preventive measures, even before the onset of disease.
