Parallel session 14:30 - 16:30
Dealing responsibly with ethical, legal and societal issues in Personalised Medicine research
Personalised Medicine promises to bring powerful new ways of improving treatment and health care, tailored to individual patients. Yet great power to improve health, care and well-being comes with great responsibility. The ELSI Servicedesk, set up by partners of COREON and BBMRI-NL, aims to offer guidance and answers to the ethical, legal and societal conundrums faced by life science professionals, policymakers and patients alike. In this interactive workshop, we map out the issues you face in policy and practice, provide tentative answers where possible, and explore ways in which a shared service could help address these problems effectively and responsibly.
Speakers will be announced shortly
