Tuesday October 31, 2017 10:45 - 12:00 Room 4

Lecturers: Bogi Eliassen, Hege Wang, Speaker 3 TBC
Moderator: Bogi Eliassen

The journey from discovery of genes to an effective clinical application is challenging and with the advancements in technology it became interdisciplinary. The goal of the genomics research is to bring personalized treatment to patients and quantifiable improvement in human health. Until few years ago, treatment strategies almost exclusively rely on the relationship between the pharmaceutical and diagnostic industries. Advancing Personalised Medicine in the digital age requires solutions for issues currently driving the IT and Software Sector, e.g. big data, machine learning, IT security, data protection, and cross-enterprise collaboration.
