Personalized Medicine: Research & Adoption

PMC and NCBiotech

Hosted by the North Carolina Precision Health Collaborative and the Personalized Medicine Coalition, this forum will explore how emerging biomedical research anticipates an era of personalized medicine that can improve patient outcomes and maximize value in health care. It will also examine the public policies and medical practices that are required to keep pace with these developments. The forum will feature a keynote session followed by a panel discussion. 

Following the forum, attendees are invited to stay for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the galleria.
