The measured man: the next frontier in medical research, Life Sciences and Society Seminar, Thursday 7th July 2016, 4:30- 7:30pm, Pavilion Room
Is the time right for a move from genetic testing and biobanking at specific time-points to continuous, real-time monitoring of individuals?
Professor Bartha Knoppers explores the implications of continuous, real time monitoring of an individual’s genome; how this ‘Measured Man’ approach might affect health systems planning and research; and how it could yield vital new information for personalised healthcare.
Delegates are invited to continue the discussions during a post seminar drinks reception.
This event is free of charge, but booking is essential via https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-measured-man-the-next-frontier-in-medical-research-registration-25600369394.
Professor Bartha Knoppers is Director of the Centre of Genomics and Policy, McGill University (Montreal).
